Columbia's Robert Goulet has become one of the hottest personalities on the entertainment scene today. He has clicked in films, is a top night club draw, probably the most sought- 
after male vocalist for TV stints, and a tremendous record seller. Each of his IP's to date has topped the 100,000 mark and, currently, Goulet is making a name for himself in the 
singles field with his first big pop side “My Love, Forgive Me (Mi Amore Scusami).'' Columbia will issue a new LP bearing the title of the single in a matter of days. Bob was fea- 
tured on his own TV special recently titled “An Hour With Robert Goulet." He will be appearing on major TV shows almost every month from now on. Next week he does the “Sun- 
day Night At The Palladium" television show in England. He is currently in the midst of negotiations for film and TV contracts.

1964 will be history in a few 
weeks. For the record industry, it 
will be historic. 

You’d probably have to turn the 
pages of “History of the Music 
Business in America” back to 1955 
—rock ’n roll’s first big year— to 
come-up with a more significant 12 
month period. 

This is the year that interna- 
tional singles product dominated 
the charts and turned a lot of sin- 
gles concepts topsy-turvy. To Eng- 
land must go the credit for the 
greatest advances ever of any for- 
eign nation on the U.S. disk scene. 

True, most of England’s armada 
of teenage talent take their cues 
from our own blues-rock tradition, 
but that portion of local touches— 
including original tunes— they em- 
ploy is sufficient to put them 
over here with tremendous impact. 

The likes of the Beatles, Rolling 
Stones, Dave Clark Five, Searchers, 
et al, not only created sales sensa- 
tions on a one-release-at-a-time 
basis, but, to the amazement of 
U.S. diskmen, rolled up giant sales 
on a number of simultaneously 
marketed records. To prove that 
they were as appealing to the teen- 
agers in the flesh (and shaggy- 
haired attire) as on disks, most of 
the English acts have conquered 
American youngsters on various 
p.a. tours. The Beatles— the “fab” 
ones— even got great critical com- 
ments for their first feature motion- 
picture try, “A Hard Day’s Night.” 

For record companies and, most 
certainly publishers, the English 
invasion has meant a constant flow 
of traffic to London and resulting 
deals, deals, deals, not to mention 
new London branches. 


If England ruled the charts this 
year, other international musical 
voices made important progress 
here, too. The Bossa Nova sound 
won renewed interest via Astrud 
Gilberto’s singing of “The Girl 
From Ipanema” and, also from 
South America, Los Indios Taba- 
jaros established themselves as a 
popular singles and LP attraction. 

The Continent was the origin for 
some hit ballad numbers, including 
Robert Goulet’s “My Love, Forgive 
Me,” Johnny Tillotson’s “She Un- 
derstands Me” and Julie Rogers’ 
“The Wedding.” 

Jazz vocalizing, an all-American 
art until now, also got a strong Eu- 
ropean exponent via a group called 
the Swingle Singers, the Scandina- 
vians who updated Bach with im- 
pressive LP sales results. 

On other musical fronts, the 
sound of international music was 
heard on Broadway. “Rugantino,” 
a performed-in-Italian show (with 
English subtitles) failed, but 
aroused the interest of many. Cur- 
rently “Zizi” and “Folies Bergere,” 
two productions from France, are 
scoring. The success of English 
musicals here (e.g. “Oliver!,” 
“Stop The World . . .”) led to 
further immigration of West End 
efforts, including “Oh What A 
Lovely War” and, yet to come, 
“Maggie May” and “Robin Hood.” 

The success of international mu- 
sic here has been, to sum it all up, 
varied and continuous. It has made 
the general worlds of music small- 
er. It looks like it wiU eventually 
make the worlds of music one. 

Next week’s editorial will look 
at 1964 as it concerned American 
musical product presented here 
and abroad.

tion shown overall in the industry; 
specific sales action in Mercury’s 
other divisions; as well as personal 
observations of music trends made by 
Green during his extensive European 
travels. 

“R&B and the beat are getting 
greater emphasis on the international 
scene,” Green pointed out, “no doubt 
due to the rapidly expanding teen age 
consuming market all over the world.” 

“Even in England,” the exec noted, 
the American R&B influence is being 
incorporated more and more into the 
beat. And what the English are doing 
to it, is revitalizing R&B in our in- 
dustry in America. 

“The English have been taking our 
R&B sound, adding their own York- 
shire pudding concept to it, and send- 
ing it right back to us stronger than 
ever before.” 

Green added that R&B is tops in 
France, too, with one of the country’s 
top singers, Johnny Hallyday, being 
strongly R&B. 

Heading up the new Blue Rock label 
will be product manager Dick Bruce, 
who has been with Mercury for sev- 
eral years in sales managerial capaci- 
ties. National promotion manager will 
be Carl Proctor, formerly with Sum- 
mit Dist. in Chicago, and who has had 
a broad background in the R&B field. 

Blue Rock will have its own roster 
of talent, with A&R duties being 
handled by Luichi de Jesus in New 
York; Leroy Lovett in the Philadel- 
phia office; and Nick Venet on the 
West Coast. In addition. Green 
stressed. Blue Rock will be “aggres- 
sive” in seeking out and purchasing 
masters. 

Distribution will be through indie 
distributors with established market- 
ing knowledge in the R&B area. 

Blue Rock’s first product release 
was shipped last week, and includes 
two singles “Baby What’s Wrong” 
b/w “Here Comes My Baby” by Jon- 
nie Mae Matthews, and “Let Her Love 
Me” b/w “When The Music Grooves” 
by Otis Leavill. 

“We believe the current important 
sales action on R&B will continue and 
have even greater success,” Green 
said. “We’re amplifying the demand 
with the establishment of a new 
division devoted strictly to this 
market.”

MARAS Starts Balloting; 

5 New C&W Categories; 

Set Mid-May Awards Date 

NEW YORK — There have been five 
new country music awards added to 
the list of Grammy winners, the ini- 
tial balloting of which went out to 
labels last week. 

NARAS execs, it was further re- 
ported, are out to condense the time 
period necessary for uncovering this 
year’s Grammy winners and are aim- 
ing for a mid-April rather than mid- 
May presentation date. 

Responding to suggestions from the 
recently-formed Nashville chapter of 
NARAS, sponsors of the Grammy 
awards, it was agreed to add the fol- 
lowing classifications : best country 
LP; best song; most promising art- 
ist; best vocal performances by a 
male and female. 

Intact is the previous country 
award category, best country single. 

In addition to the country area 
moves, there’s a new jazz category, 
best instrumental (any size). Also, 
the classical scene is represented by a 
new category, best vocal chamber 
music. 

In the pop field, the previous cate- 
gory of best ork (other than dancing) 
has been dropped in favor of best per- 
formance by an ork or instrumental- 
ist — -other than jazz. 

This week, all active members will 
be supplied with their forms. Their 
selections plus label listings will com- 
prise the initial eligibility list which, 
according to new NARAS prexy Ne- 
suhi Ertegun, may run well over 
4,000 entries. 

Eligible recordings will span a total 
of 47 categories. It’s the intention of 
NARAS to give as much representa- 
tion as possible to all the creative 
facets of the recording field, while at 
the same time trying to keep the total 
number of awards within “reasonable 
limits.”

NEW YORK — Nesuhi Ertegun has 
been elected the new national presi- 
dent of NARAS by the Academy’s 18 
national trustees. The vice-president 
of Atlantic Records, and formerly the 
president of the Record Academy’s 
New York Chapter, Ertegun takes 
over the reigns from out-going presi- 
dent John Scott Trotter, who served 
the Academy during the past year. 

Along with Ertegun’s election, the 
trustees picked three new national 
officers and re-elected a fourth for 
one year terms. Francis Scott, III, of 
Capitol Records, was tabbed to con- 
tinue as national treasurer. Joel Fried- 
man of Warner Brothers Records was 
elected 1st vice-president; disk star 
Chet Atkins, a member of the 
NARAS board of governors in Nash- 
ville, was picked as second-vice presi- 
dent, while William Traut, a vet of 
the Chicago Chapter as well as a 
creative force for the Seeburg Cor- 
poration, was voted in as new na- 
tional secretary. 

Commented Ertegun; “Naturally I 
consider it an honor to be elected to 
this very respected and responsible 
office. I also consider it a personal 
challenge, for we have already had 
three excellent national presidents in 
Paul Weston, Bob Yorke and John 
Scott Trotter, each of whom has 
served the Academy exceptionally 
well. It is my hope and my ambition 
to continue their fine work by con- 
tinuing to lead NARAS in its already 
established direction of new vitality, 
responsibility and respect — a direc- 
tion followed so well by my predeces- 
sors. Of course, I too will seek and 
hope to receive the same fine coopera- 
tion of the many dedicated and crea- 
tive people within our organization. 
For they, after all, are really 
NARAS.”

Bobbi Martin 



Bobbi Martin, who is currently- 
scoring with “Don’t Forget I Still 
Love You” on the Coral label, is no 
overnight sensation. Unlike many of 
her peers who jump into the winner’s 
circle with little or no experience, she 
has been perfecting her craft for the 
past four years in some of the na- 
tion’s top supper clubs. 

A product of Baltimore, Bobbi was 
exposed to music from her earliest 
childhood. After completing her edu- 
cation at St. Jermon’s and St. Peter’s 
in her home town she set her sights 
for New York. Personal manager 
Miriam Love took Bobbi under her 
wing and in short order the lark was 
playing the night club circuit (e.g. 
the Playboy Clubs, Blinstrub’s, Belle- 
vue Casino, etc.) in addition to guest- 
ing on national TV shows.

Sandie Shaw, who is currently 
clicking on both sides of the foam 
■with “Always Something There To 
Remind Me,” the recent Lou Johnson 
hit, was discovered by British song- 
ster Adam Faith. 

Although the seventeen-year-old 
lass has always dreamed of a show 
business career nothing ever came of 
it. One day, however, she mustered 
up her courage and went backstage 
at the music-hall where Faith was 
appearing with the Roulettes. After 
telling them that she wanted to make 
a name for herself as a singer, Sand- 
ie sang her interpretation of “Every- 
body Loves A Lover.” Adam was 
quite impressed. He believed the 
youngster, who sings with her shoes 
off, had a distinctive and imaginative 
singing style. A few weeks later she 
had passed an audition and signed a 
contract with England’s Pye Records. 
A pact with Reprise for her Ameri- 
can recordings followed shortly there- 
after. 

Sandie, who has been playing at 
string concerts, p.a.’s, etc. in her na- 
tive Blighty, will be making her ini- 
tial stateside visit in the immediate 
future.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we got 
as many as ten million votes,” pre- 
dicted WTRY-Albany program man- 
ager Lee Gray in Oct. as the outlet 
kicked off its “Teen Election” pro- 
motion. High schools were invited to 
send in their votes for Johnson or 
Goldwater . . . each petition signature 
counted one vote, and each Big Bond 
or Hollywood Bread wrapper of fac- 
simile, counted fifty votes. The win- 
ning school would collect an Inaugural 
Ball, complete with live band, re- 
cording stars, deejays, prizes, refresh- 
ments, the works . . . and their 
favorite teacher and his or her spouse 
would be sent to Washington to be 
official WTRY reporter at the Inaug- 
ural. The schools placing second and 
third would win a record hop with 
their favorite platter spinner, and all 
three top schools would be awarded 
a distinctive plaque, honoring their 
civic and school spirit. WTRY morn- 
ing man Don Weeks and PM man 
Rick Snyder toured the schools in a 
mobile unit, doing remotes and col- 
lecting votes. Thousands of area teens 
and a surprising number of local 
adults sported WTRY Teen Election” 
lapel buttons, which had a place to 
signify their choice of candidate. And 
the votes started arriving at the 
studios .... by the cardboard carton- 
full. The number of votes cast collec- 
tively by the top twenty high schools 
reached the astronomical total of 549 
million, 711 thousand, 442. It’s diffi- 
cult to determine who was most en- 
thusiastic about the Teen Election 
. . . the deejay staff, the winning 
schools or the Big Bond Bread Com- 
pany, which reported an unprece- 
dented increase in sales. 

Do you wake up in the morning

listeners of KEX-Portland need not 
despair any more for the station is 
currently unleashing another public 
service; Videotic Theater, a synopsis 
of the last reel of the previous night’s 
TV flick. KEX is bringing the Great 
Northwest full-dramatized “conclu- 
sion” of first-run motion pictures. 
Some of the great film conclusions 
coming up on the station will be: 
“The Millie Muffett Story of “The 
Great White Whey” (A heart-warm- 
ing story of the girl-next-door who 
makes good on Broadway), “Dr. 
Jekyell’s Magic Martini” or “The 
Olive That 'Took Over The World” 
(A chilling science-fiction thriller that 
might happen tomorrow or today), 
etc. Videotic Theater is a creation of 
the outlet’s program director. Bob 
Hawkins. . . . Beginning the day 
after Thanksgiving and continuing 
through Dec. 24, KEX will occupy a 
building in downtown Portland for 
the purpose of promoting Christmas, 
holiday spirit, public service, and the 
general good-will that goes with the 
holiday season. This special center 
will be known as the KEX Holiday 
House. They’ll be inviting people to 
drop in to rest while they are Christ- 
mas shopping. Seating and coffee will 
be provided.

Bob Holliday, program director of 
WING-Dayton, sends along word that 
the station’s annual Lively Guy Walk 
For Those Who Can’t was a tre- 
mendous hit. The 1964 walk was the 
most successful as the deejays de- 
livered 200 shopping bags full of

Dayton area hospitals and orphan-

PREDILICTIONS 
FOR 1965 

THAT MAY NOT 

STATISTIC: If you melted 
down all the plastic in all the 
records made by the Animals, 
Kinks and the Beatles, you 
could cover the British Isles 
with a sound-proof plastic 
shell — which might not be 
bad. 

PREDICTION: Murry the K 
will be promoted to Murry 
the L 

People who start every 
other statement by saying, 
“WELL, I FEEL . . scare 
me. I can accept: “I THINK”, 
or “I KNOW,” or even “I 
GUESS,” but “I FEEL”???? 
You can feel hot, cold, tired 
or itchy, but if you feel an 
opinion it usually means you 
have no facts, no knowledge 
and no purpose — except get- 
ting the most for the least. 

MAYBE the R.I.A.A. will 
wake up and try to get some 
Excise Tax Relief for the in- 
dustry. Perhaps the legisla- 
tors will listen to an appeal 
concerning Educational, Classi- 
cal, or Childrens' Records. 
One thing’s for sure — if 
R.I.A.A. doesn't, they'll lift 
the tax on fur coats and dia- 
mond rings before they do on 
The Animals! 

1966 REPORT: While the 
ear-plug transistor and the 
tape-machine-FM Radio Com- 
bine started to destroy the 
Record Industry during 1965 
— a sudden change was de- 
tected: D.J.’s, lead by Murry 
the M (he was promoted 
again) began to jam per- 
formances on the air with 
more and more commercials 
— they began to realize their 
heads would roll, too. If 
They Let The Kids Tape 
Complete Songs. , 


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

NEW YORK — Following a successful 
seasons of concerts and disk dates in 
Europe, acclaimed soprano Leontyne 
Price is back in the U.S. and next 
week will perform and record for the 
first time with the Boston Symphony. 
Under Erich Leinsdorf’s direction, 
she’ll do two Strauss works, the last 
scene from “Salome” and “The Egyp- 
tian Helen.” 

Site of the concert will be Boston’s 
Symphony Hall (11, 12), with the 
session to follow immediately there- 
after. 

While she’ll be doing her first con- 
cert with the Boston Symphony, she 
has recorded a number of operas 
under the baton of Leinsdorf, includ- 
ing last spring’s Grammy winner 
(best opera recording) “Madame 
Butterfly.” 

Her recent “Carmen” release is one 
of Victor’s fastest-selling opera sets 
in the label’s history, and even made 
sales noise on the pop charts. 

While in Europe, Miss Price re- 
corded Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino” 
for Victor, with Thomas Schippers as 
the conductor. 

She appeared at the Vienna Staat- 
soper in productions of “II Trova- 
tore,” “Aida” and “Tosca,” and with 
the Berlin Opera in “H Trovatore.” 
She was the only American singer to 
be invited to accompany La Scala 
Opera on its visit to Russia. In Mos- 
cow, she sang in the Verdi Requiem 
and received an ovation of unprece- 
dented length. She also sang in a 
Bach Cantata in the Berlin Festival.

Pick of the Week 


PROMISED LAND (2:20) [Arc BMI— Chuck Berry Music] 
THINGS I USED TO DO (2:40) [Venice, BMI— Jones] 

CHUCK BERRY (Chess 1916) 

Berry’s at his drivin’ best on his latest for Chess. Tabbed “Promised 
Land,” it’s a ‘pull-out-all-the-stops’ rocker that Chuck pounds out solid 
sales authority. It’s a real mover that should head out for hit territory 
in no time flat. Backing’s a lazy paced blues shuffler that also has a hit 
outlook. Both are in Chuck’s “St. Louis To Liverpool” LP. 


MAKIN’ WHOOPEE (3:16) 

[Bergman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP — Kahn, Donaldson] 

MAKIN’ WHOOPEE (2:37) 

[Bergman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP — Kahn, Donaldson] 

RAY CHARLES 10609) 

Ray Charles should have no difficulty in zooming up the charts in 
no time flat with this new ultra-commercial release from AB()-Para- 
mount. The plug side here, “Makin’ Whoopee,” the old sentimental 
evergreen, is given an exciting, soulful, funky reading by the chanter. 
On the flip, the artist displays his distinctive keyboard technique and 
superbly plays the same tune sans vocal. 


LOVELY, LOVELY (LOVELY, LOVELY) (2:27) 
[Picturetone, BMI — Supraner, Rothman] 

THE WEEKEND’S HERE (2:28) [Evanston, BMI — M'ushinsky, Bell] 
CHUBBY CHECKER (Parkway 936) 

Chubby Checker could have one of his strongest singles outings in quite 
a while with this captivating “Wimoweh”-fashioned pulsator tagged, 
“Lovely, Lovely.” Attention-getting choral-ork backdrop rounds out what 
looks like a big winner. The undercut’s a multi-flavored shouter in a 
vibrant, steady-stompin’ setting that’s also sure to command a healthy 
share of the action. 


HEY LITTLE ONE (2:30) [Radford, BMI— Burnett, DeVorzon] 
SPEAK TO ME (2:20) [LeBill, BMI— Roush] 

J. FRANK WILSON & CAVALIERS (Josie 926) 

J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers follow up their recent chart-topper, 
“Last Kiss,’’ with this feelingful revival of the years back Dorsey Burnett 
hit, “Hey Little One.” The side is already on its merry chart way. The flip 
is an upbeat handclapper geared to the likes of the teen dance set. 

BY BUDDY SEAT (2:09) 

[New Executive, Beechwood, BMI — Wilson, Usher] 

YOU’RE GONNA RIDE WITH ME (1:40) 

[Mer-Ven, Beechwood, BMI — Christian, Usher] 

THE HONDELLS (Mercury 72366) 

The Hondells, raced up the top ten charts aboard their “Little Honda” 
motorcycle smash Mercury bow, can head right back there with this 
new one tabbed “My Buddy Seat.” Tune, which refers to the back seat 
built for a friend, is treated to a sensational teen beat performance by 
the group. Nick Venet directed this Ben-Ven prod. More of the same 
top teen stulf on the flip. 

I’LL BE THERE (2:48) [T. M., BMI— Darin] 

YOU YOU YOU (2:00) [Pacemaker, BMI— Marsden] 

GERRY & THE PACEMAKERS (Laurie 3279) 

Gerry and the Pacemakers should easily continue their big hit string 
with this new Laurie addition. It’s the Bobby Darin oldie, “I’ll Be 
There,” that lead voice Gerry and Co. takes for an ear-pleasing soft 
beat cha cha ride. Fine string-filled accompaniment. Coupler, not the 
oldie, is a heartfelt jumper. 

SMILE [Bourne, ASCAP — Chaplin, Parsons, Philips] 

LOVE IS STRANGE [Jonware, BMI — Smith, Baker] 

BETTY EVERETT & JERRY BUTLER (VeeJay 633) 

The artists, who successfully teamed up on an oldie, “Let It Be Me,” 
are in for more of the same happy chart results with another evergreen 
up-dating. This time it’s “Smile” (from Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights”) 
that Betty and Jerry deliver in beautiful soft shuffle ballad style. The 
Mickey & Sylvia teen classic makes an infectious cha cha beat return on 
the flip. 

BUCKET “T” (2:35) [Screen Gems, Col. BMI — Christian, Berry] 
LITTLE RAIL JOB (2:20) Buckhorn, BMI— Wilkin] 

RONNY & THE DAYTONAS (Mala 492) 

Ronny & The Daytonas are chart-bound once again as they rip one 
off in “G.T.O.” smash fashion. This one’s another sizzling hot-rod’er, 
labeled “Bucket “T,” that the race thru in money-making vocal and 
instrumental style. Loads of “Surfin’ Bird”-like gimmicks on this potent 
Bill Justis prod. More strong teen-b eat doin’s on the flip. 


Pick of the Week 


FAITH (2:41) [Edwin Morris, ASCAP — Lawrence, Freeman] 

BYE ’N BYE (2:58) [Inter’l, ASCAP— Armstrong] 

LOUIS ARMSTRONG (Mercury 72371) 

Satchmo continues in his delectable “Hello, Dolly!” — “So Long Dearie” 
frame of mind with “Faith,” a happy spiritual-like number from the 
incoming musical, “I Had A Ball.” Bound for the kind of airplay that 
means chart sales. Flip is the authentic spiritual done as an instrumental. 


COME ON DO THE JERK (2:47) 

[Jobete, BMI — Whited, Moore, Rogers, Robinson] 

BABY DON’T YOU GO (2:55) [Jobete, BMI— Robinson] 

THE MIRACLES (Tamla 54109) 

The Miracles, who recently added “That’s What Love Is Made Of” to a 
long list of chart winners, hop on the bandwagon to cash in on the 
success of the current dance craze, the Jerk, with this thumping item 
tagged, “Come On Do The Jerk.” The reverse is an easy-listening change- 
of-pace rhythm ballad opus they dish up feelingfully. The group should 
strike paydirt with this entry. 


HE’S MY GUY (2:35) [Blackwood, BMI— McCoy] 

(I WANT A) TRUE, TRUE LOVE (2:30) 

[Screen Gems, Col., BMI — Willingham, Beery] 

IRMA THOMAS (Imperial 66080) 

Irma Thomas can regain her dual-mart hit touch with this new Im- 
perial session. It’s a feelingful, beat-ballad romancer, tabbed “He’s My 
Guy,” that Irma puts over with tender emotion. Inviting Nick De Caro- 
led support rounds out the Top 100 contender. Underlid’s a throbbing cha 
cha beat-ballad affair. 


CAN YOU JERK LIKE ME (2:26) [Jobete, BMI — Stevenson, Hunter] 
THAT DAY WHEN SHE NEEDED ME (2:30) [Jobete, BMI— Robinson] 
THE CONTOURS (Gordy 7037) 

The Contours are good bets to get back in their “Do You Love Me” 
smash ways as they climb aboard the ‘jerk dance bandwagon’. Boys ask 
“Can You Jerk Like Me” on this enthusiastic rocker that’s sure to set the 
teen hoofers in motion. Producers are Stevenson and Hunter. Complete 
change-of-pace in the tender cha cha beat-ballad underlid. 

SUNRISE, SUNSET (2:53) [Sunbeam, BMI— Hamick, Bock] 

THE BELLS RING (2:30) [Big B, ASCAP— Gary] 

JOHN GARY (RCA Victor 8479) 

Gary, who’s had tremendous LP success, can have his biggest single 
session to date in this charmer from “Fiddler On The Roof.” It’s the 
lovely Yiddish folk tune, “Sunrise, Sunset,” that the rich-toned songster 
lilts over with telling effect. Stellar ork-choral showcase supplied by 
Joe Lipman. Companion piece is an extremely pretty toe-tapper titled 
“The Bells Ring.” Dave Gates serves up the grade “A” vocal-instrumental 
support here. Joe Reisman produced the lid. 

I WANT JUSTICE (2:12) [Fame, BMI— Frank, Penn] 

I’M GETTING BETTER (2:01) [Riley & Lyn, Lou, BMI— Bruce] 
JIMMY HUGHES (Fame 6404) 

Jimmy Hughes can quickly get back in his “Steal Away” money- 
making ways with this power-packed new entry tabbed “I Want Justice.” 
'The side is a rollicking, hard-driving, chorus-backed teen-angled pop-r&b 
twister with a contagious repeating riff. “I’m Getting Better” is a slow- 
shufflin’ moody affair about a guy who attempts to adjust to the fact 
that his romance went kaput. 


SEVEN LETTERS (2:47) [Milky Way, BMI— King] 

RIVER OF TEARS (2:30) [South Mountain, Cotillion, BMI — Washington] 
BEN E. KING (Atco 6328) 

Ben E. King seems destined to do Top 100 business with this new 
hitsville-loomer tagged “Seven Letters.” The tune is a slow-shuffln’, 
chorus-backed pop-r&b weeper about a guy who finally decides to break 
off with his gal. On the flip, “River Of Tears,” the chanter dishes-up an 
appealing, rhythmic organ-backed soulful traditional blues tearjerker. 

I WANT IT THAT WAY (2:41) [Bibo, ASCAP— Morris, Ballard, Jr.] 

I’D RATHER DIE YOUNG (2:34) 

[Randy, Smith, ASCAP — Smith, Wood, Vaughn] 

PAT BOONE (Dot 16684) 

The smooth-toned songster’s latest for Dot promises to be one of his 
biggest in some time. It’s a tantalizing, Latin-flavored romancer, tagged 
“I Want It That Way,” that Pat delivers with loads of feeling. Potent 
instrumental support from Billy Vaughn’s outfit. Also keep close tabs 
on the lilting revival of the heart rendering sentimental oldie, “I’d 
Rather Die Young.”

JUST CALL, I’LL BE THERE (2:26) [Unart, BMI— Blackwell] 
ROCKING PNEUMONIA (2:05) [Ace, BMI— Smith, Vincent] 

P, J. PROBEY (Imperial 66079) 

Probey, an American artist who made it big in Britain first (and then 
scored here with “Hold Me”), can have his first big one on the Imperial 
label with “Just Call, I’ll Be There.” It’s a potent chorus-backed rock-a- 
cha-cha that has Probey really going up the vocal scale. The Huey Smith 
oldie, “Rockin’ Pneumonia (And The Boogie Woogie Flu”), takes a 
striking teen beat ride on the under half.

portions the poignant sentimental “Danny Boy” that the femmes carve 
out in emotion-packed beat-ballad manner. The other’s the beautiful in- 
spirational ballad, “I Believe,” that the gals also treat to a superb per- 
formance. Richie Rome and the Embers lend a top flight string-filled 
accompaniment on these two potent sides. 

DON’T MAKE HER CRY (2:14) [Blackwood BMI — Johnston] 
BARBARA’S THEME (3:14) [Mansion ASCAP— Pleis, Gold] 
MIKE CLIFFORD (United Artists 794) 

Cliff can return to “Close To Cathy” stardom on this new UA effort. 
It’s a poignant, ultra lovely ballad, titled “Don’t Make Her Cry,” that 
Mike reads with touching sincerity. Don Costa’s the arranger-conductor 
of this excellent Jack Gold-produced date. The haunting mood entry, 
“Barbara’s Theme,” is from the pic “Diary Of A Bachelor.” 

I’D DO IT AGAIN (2:29) [Drury Lane, Beckie BMI — Kesler, Sisk] 

SO CRUEL (2:18) [Drury Lane, Beckie BMI — Davidson] 

BOBBY WOOD (Joy 291) 

Wood’s newest Joy offering (from the LP tagged after his name) is 
a very pretty shuffle-beat-ballad opus tabbed “ (With All My Heart) 
I’d Do It Again.” It’s a tender, chorus-backed country-flavored affair on 
which Stan Kessler takes first-rate arranging-conducting credits. Back- 
ing’s a heartfelt, cha cha beat ballad thump’er labeled “So Cruel.” 

POPPING POPCORN (2:17) [Cortez, Unbelievable BMI — Vann, Clowney] 

THE QUESTION (DO YOU LOVE ME) (2:50) 

[Cortez, Unbelievable BMI — ^Vann, Clowney] 

DAVE “BABY” CORTEZ (Okeh 7208) 

“The Happy Organ” man Dave “Baby” Cortez joins the Okeh roster 
with this new outing and chances are he’ll make an impressive initial 
showing. Side to watch is the exciting hand-clapping thumper, “Popping 
Popcorn,” that sports some vocal comments along the way. Great teen 
hop item. There’s a potent vocal by Dave on the touching beat-ballad 
undercut. Teddy Vann’s the producer. 

IT’S BETTER TO HAVE IT (2:50) [Nujac BMI— Ozen] 
PEOPLE GONNA TALK (2:37) [Crazy Cajun BMI— Bradshaw 
BARBARA LYNN (Jamie 1292) 

Lark stands a strong chance in making the hit grade once again via 
this new Jamie performance. It’s a powerful, chorus-backed funky-blues 
plea for romance, labeled “It’s Better To Have It,” that boasts an infec- 
tious teen-angled multi-dance beat. Terrific dual-mart potential. Under- 
cut’s a hard-driving blues weeper with an interesting repeating melodic 
riff.

Newcomer Picks 


PRETTY GIRLS EVERYWHERE (2:30) 

[Recordo-BMI — Church, Williams] 

DOIN’ THE JERK (2:25) [Mer-Ven-BMI— Engel] 

THE WALKER BROS. (Smash 1952) 

The Walker Bros., a new West Coast vocal group, should stir up a lot 
of sales and deejay excitement with this potent revival of the while-back 
Eugene Church hit “Pretty Girls Everywhere.” A stompin’ Shorty Rogers 
arrangement is the perfect complement to the group’s first-rate vocal 
offering. The reverse is another dance delighter tagged “Doin’ The Jerk” 
also geared for immediate teen acceptance. 


Christmas Picks Of The Week 


DEAREST SANTA (2:49) [Famous, ASCAP— Boyd, Dunn] 

THE BELL THAT COULDN’T JINGLE (2:20) 
[Rosewood/Bacharach/Twelve Stave, ASCAP — Kusik, Bacharach] 

BOBBY VINTON (Epic 9741) 

Bobby Vinton should keep the cash registers ringing steadily this 
Christmas season with this poignant ballad tagged “Dear Santa,” about 
an orphan boy who wants only a family for Christmas. Tune is from the 
songster’s new Yule album. The flip is a seasonal novelty item with a 
catchy melody that should also come in for a good share of the spins and 
sales. 

I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY (2:35) 

[St. Nicholas, ASCAP — Longfellow, Marks] 

THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY (3:03) 

[Mills, ASCAP — Davis, Onarati, Simeone] 

FRANK SINATRA (Reprise 0314) 

Frank Sinatra is sure to pick up plenty of spins and sales this season 
with this moving reading of “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day,” 
culled from a new Reprise Yule LP that also features Crosby and War- 
ing. The tune is pop but the message is spiritual. The reverse is a bright 
treatment of the perennial Simeone-cleffed “The Little Drummer Boy.” 
Both ends should see top-drawer activity. 

DANCING WITH SANTA (2:32) [Willong, BMI— Lapole] 

REAL LIVE DOLL (2:35) [Willong, BMI— Lapole] 

THE TRASHMEN (Garrett 4013) 

The Trashmen can have a “Surfin’ Bird” sales-giant for the Holiday 
season as they come up with one that the teeners’ll flip over. It’s a driving 
low-keyed pounder,' tabbed “Dancing With Santa,” that the old fella’s 
doin’ the watusi. George Garrett’s the producer. On the catchy jumper, on 
the other end, the guy wants a “Real Live Doll” for Christmas. 

THE CHRISTMAS SONG (2:25) [E. H. Morris, ASCAP— Torme, Wells] 

I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS (2:56) 

[Cotillion, Tredlew, BMI — Treadwell, Davis] 

DRIFTERS (Atlantic 8266) 

The Drifters seem sure to jump into the winner’s circle with this top- 
flight new Yuletide entry. The side to watch here, “The Christmas 
Song,” the seasonal sturdie, is given a warm-hearted lyrical reading (com- 
plete with counterpoint portions) by the group. The attractive coupler, “I 
Remember Christmas,” easy-shufflin’ bluesey sentimental affair with a 
nostalgic while-back suond. 


Christmas Re-Issue Picks 


HE’S IN TOWN (2:35) [Screen Gems, Col. BMI— Goffin, King] 
FLASHBACK (2:08) [Sea-Lark BMI— Giant, Baum, Kaye] 

THE ROCKIN’ BERRIES (Reprise 0329) 

Here’s another tune that originally made the grade in the U.S. (via the 
Tokens’ outing) — is currently riding high on England (via this Rockin’ 
Berries performance) — and is also set for another chart run back in the 
States. It’s the haunting “He’s In Town” that takes an infectious new 
cha cha ride. Watch it once again. Backing’s a pulsating jet-speed rocker 
tagged “Flashback.” 

WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER (2:15) 

[Shapiro Bernstein ASCAP — Kent, Burton] 

SOMETHING OR OTHER (2:15) 

[Burdette BMI — Midkiff, Harris, Meeks, Kleinow] 

SIR RALEIGH & THE CUPONS (A&M 757) 

Looks like Sir Raleigh can become an important wax name in the 
near future. Backed by the Cupons, the chanter turns in an impressive, 
English-accent, soft thump beat cha cha up-dating of the lovely senti- 
mental oldie, “White Cliffs Of Dover.” Potent side produced by Jerry 
Dennon. Undercut’s a zany Liverpool-sounding instrumental with some 
comical lyrics along the way. 


RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER (2:32)

melodic oldie is dished-up with a

RAMBLINGS 


NEW YORK: 

Columbia’s Tony Bennett, still 
climbing with his Newley-Bricusse 
H tune, “Who Can I Turn To,” bowed 
an album tagged after the single last 
week. He also did four tunes on the 
Sullivan show of the 22nd. After 
n three SRO concerts at Carnegie Hall 
/ over the past couple of years, Tony 

' will give two concerts at the Brooklyn 

( Academy of Music on Dec. 26-27 via 
the auspices of Sid Bernstein, then on 
to Hollywood for three major network 
TV’ers. . . . Dick James, of the London 
pubbery which bears his name, came 
( by the CB offices a few weeks ago dur- 
ing a hurried trip to the States. It 
( was also very nice to hear from Dick 
( after his return. Dick heads up one of 
£ the hottest publishing firms in Britain. 
. . . The Four Seasons, with a string 
of million sellers to their credit, have 
] re-signed a management pact with 
Jerry Weintraub, their original man- 
ager. The lads are also top TV attrac- 
tions. . . . The Animals, out with a 
new item called, “Boom Boom,” 
(MGM) will make a second appear- 
ance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Jan. 
24th. . . . Herman’s Hermits, another 
hit English group on MGM via their 
best-selling “I’m Into Something 
Good,” arrive from London this week 
with producer Mickie Most. They’ll 
do a fast bit of Gotham promo and 
then jet to the Coast for a shot on 
“The Shindig” ABC-TV’er. 

Gloria Lynne, Joe Williams and 
Tito Puente headline the show this 
week at the Apollo Theater with Sym- 
phony Sid handling the emcee chores. 

. . . Colpix’s Bernadette Castro is on 
the promo trail on behalf of her new 
single, “Get Rid Of Him.” The tune 
was penned and produced by the 


Howard Greenfield-Helen Miller team. 
. . . Marty Klein has joined the staff 
of Gerard Purcell Associates to work 
in publicity. . . . Gale Garnett is a top 
draw since her recent chart-topper, 
“We’ll Sing In The Sunshine,” on 
RCA Victor, and has a heavy schedule 
of concert commitments. . . . All of 
us at CB welcomed the return of 
staffer Mike Martucci after his two- 
week stay in the hospital. . . . Philips’ 
award-winning Swingle Singers are 
sharing the bill with folkster Buffy 
Sainte-Marie and guitarist George 
Morel at the Village Gate. . . . Talent- 
ed newcomer Jerry Evans, a standout 
in the Miami production of “The 
Fantasticks” (and set for the city’s 
up-coming version of “Little Mary 
Sunshine”), makes his TV bow on 
the Dec. 12 Clay Cole TV’er. Songster, 
who’s slated to wax an LP of tunes 
penned by Steve Allen, happens to be 
the son of Leo Pincus, owner of the 
plush Steak Pit in Paramus, N. J. 

Earl (he’s the real “Duke”) Glicken, 
who heads up his own Promotions, 
Ltd. outfit, buzzin’ from Chicago that 
Roulette has a bust-wide-open single 
out-that-a-way in Detergents’ “Leader 
Of The Laundromat” and a red-hot 
LP in Sandy Baron’s “The Race 
Race.” He adds that we should watch 
out for the Candy Girls’ “The Race 
Race” (Rotate) and that the New 
Yorkers are big in Chi with the “Hello 
Dolly Polka” (Pam). Earl’s operation, 
by the way, was a cover pic and fea- 
ture story in the Highland Park, 111. 
Featuring magazine section. . . . Lisa 
Kirk, currently a smash in the road 
show version of Meredith Willson’s 
“Here’s Love,” will come into New 
York for a wax session to cut an al- 
bum of the composer’s hits for MGM. 

. . . Sammy Vargas, new promo rep 


for States Record Dist., dropped by 
the CB offices last week on behalf of 
Mainstream’s Morgana King and her 
“Taste Of Honey Set,” and the Rose- 
buds’ issue on Tower tagged, “Say 
You’ll Be Mine.” 

Jamie-Guyden’s Gunter Hauer buz- 
zed from the City of Brotherly Love 
that the label is very excited over 
three possible sales blockbusters — 
“Kiss And Run” by Bobby Skel, 
which is over 10,000 in Philly and 
picking up in Balto, Wash., and Bos- 
ton; the new Barbara Lynn etching, 
“It’s .-Better To .Have It,” and the 
Arctic release by Barbara Mason 
dubbed, “Come To Me.” . . . “T. J.” 
Johnson’s Teen Life Hops swinging 
thru the Met area with The Run- 


arounds, The Petittes, Lesley Miller, 
Milan, The Valtairs, The Tone-Mates, 
and Richie & The Dynamics. . . . Mo- 
town’s Bobby Breen jets to the El San 
Jaun Hotel in P.R. for a week Dec. 8, 
and then on to Hollywood for a stint 
on the “Hollywood Palace” TV’er of 
Dec. 20th. 

Glenn Productions’ Ben Arrigo mak- 
ing promo noises for “Through The 
Years With Vincent Youmans” (Ever- 
green), “Hawaii For The Young At 
Heart” by Ted Aujetta on 20th Cen- 
tuiy Fox, and “Follow Your Heart” by 
Tony Pastor Jr. on Playbill. . . . Trade 
and consumer press reps were thor- 
oughly delighted by French “Ye Ye 
Girl” Sylvie Vartan at a press meet 
given by RCA Victor at the Hotel 
Pierre recently. The lark, in New 
York for a 10-day wax session with 
Joe Rene at the knobs, proved to be a 


real charmer — in French and English. 

The album and single to emerge from 
the sessions last week will be un- 
veiled after the holidays. Sylvie is one 
of the three leading “Ye Ye Girls” in ^

PUERTO RICO: 


We certainly agree with Tony Bea- 
con, publisher of the San Juan Diary 
(and man-about-town) that 9 of the 
most talented yoimgsters are on dis- 
play at Condado Beach Hotel in Robert 
Simpson’s 3rd edition of “Hits Of 

Broadway.” It’s a superb revue One 

of the funniest performances we’ve 
witnessed took place at the Americana 
Hotel’s Port O’ Call Room where 
Charlie Manna’s been breaking it up. 
Also on the bill are the very clever 
Brothers Cain, who mix their songs 
and laughs in extremely tasty style. 
. . . It was also a delight to ee Pat 
Boone (and mgr. Jack Spina) who 
were in San Juan for the premier of 
Pat’s newest flick, “Goodbye Charlie.”

Impulse Records Celebrates 5th Anniversary In Business 


TO CONTINUE OPERATION UNDER POLICY WHICH MADE IT GROW 


— MAKE IT WITH STRONG IDEAS RATHER THAN A LARGE ROSTER 



BOB THIELE 


NEW YORK — A concept of ideas 
rather than a slew of exclusive pat- 
tees continues to be the format of Im- 
pulse! Records, ABC-Paramount’s 
five-year-old jazz subsid. 

While the original central format 
of Impulse! was to cut the “new, the 
modem and the avant garde,” Bob 
Thiele, who directs the operation of 
the label, has tried to broaden this 
repertoire to include all phases of the 
jazz spectrum. 

But, the one-shot artist policy basi- 
cally continues and has left the disk- 
ery with a small, select roster of ex- 
clusive pactees, including John Col- 
trane, Yusef Lateef, Shirley Scott and 
McCoy Tyner and the two Soviet 
jazzmen who defected to the West, 
Boris Midney and Igor Berukshtis. 

Under this one-shot attitude, the 
label has done packages by such stars 
as Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, 
Quincy Jones, Benny Carter and 
Shelley Manne, among others. Due in 
Jan. is a Lionel Hampton set, “You 


Better Know It,” on which he per- 
forms with a small combo, consisting 
of personnel he hasn’t recorded with 
in some 20 years. One of them is Ben 
Webster. 

Also, the label has paired jazz 
greats for the first time. Such fram- 
ings have consisted of Duke Elling- 
ton and Coleman HawKins, Charlie 
Mingus and John Coltrane. 

In Thiele’s view, the main problem 
is the introduction of new artists. 
“No matter how talented an artist 
is,” he explains, “the record company 
has to have faith, and stick with him 
beyond the first release, even though 
it may not be a bit.” As an example 
of an artist coming through under 
such circumstances, Thiele points to 
McCoy Tyner, once Coltrane’s pianist 
and now a solid jazzist in his own 
right. 

A future example of Thiele’s think- 
ing is another Jan. release, by Archie 
Shepp, a tenor sax discovery of Col- 
trane, who co-produced the set with 


Thiele. 

Working in combination with artis- 
try at Impulse! in obtaining success is 
artwork. The label feels that its “co- 
ordinated covers” has achieved a 
definite, image, instantly recognizable 
in a collection of albums on a record 
store shelf. Featuring dramatic 
photos, with a minimum of printing, 
the aim is to telegraph the album 
concept immediately to the viewer. 
Double-fold packaging is also standard, 
which allows for detailed liner notes 
and a number of photos. “The real 
jazz connoisseur wants as complete 
information as he can get about an 
album,” says Thiele. Impulse! liners 
always list personnel and recording 
dates. 

The Jan. release will total 12 
a,’bums. It will give the label a cata- 
log of 89 LP’s. The sum lends credence 
to the label’s claim that it is “The 
Definitive Jazz Scene.”

POP PICKS 




THE BEATLES’ STORY— Capitol— STBO 2222 
This new two-pocket set from Capitol tagged 
“The Beatles’ Story” looms as one of the most 
powerful sales items of the current Christmas- 
buying season. Beatle fans will flip for this his- 
torical offering which traces chronologically the 
phenomenal impact on the world the fantastic 
group has had during the past year. Excerpts 
of all their big hits are here along with fan 
interviews and photos. The whole story is right 
here on one set. Package is sure to skyrocket. 


WHO CAN I TURN TO— Tony Bennett— Colum- 
bia CL 2285 

Tony Bennett tags this new Columbia album 
outing after his current chart-climber, “Who Can 
I Turn To,” the haunting and melodically beauti- 
ful new Anthony Newley-Leslie Bricusse tune. 
The vet chanter has been constantly represented 
on the charts the last few years and this new set 
is sure to make a strong showing in short order. 
Bennett fans will flip for his potent readings of 
such gems as “I Walk A Little Faster,” “There’s 
A Lull In My Life” and “I’ve Never Seen.” Watch 
this one zoom in sales and airplay. 


THE GOLDEN MILLIONS — Lawrence Welk — 
Dot DLP 25611 

Lawrence Welk pays a moving musical tribute 
to the femme singers of yesterday on this new 
Dot LP which boasts a nifty sampling of some 
while-back chart successes by gals. The big, full- 
bodied Welk ork shines as turn in top-rung ren- 
ditions of “You Belong To Me,” “Cry Me A 
River” and “I Can Dream, Can’t I?” Disk should 
jump into the winner’s circle in no time flat. 


SHE UNDERSTANDS ME— Johnny Tillotson— 
MGM E4270 

Johnny Tillotson cashes in on the sales accept- 
ance of his current single smash, “She Under- 
stands Me,” to tag this new album session on 
MGM. The chanter, who’s found pop success with 
country material has a natural built-in market 
for all of his musical offerings, and this package 
is sure to get plenty of sales attention. Other 
bright bands here are “Busted,” “That’s When 
It Hurts The Most” and “Yellow Bird.” Loads of 
chart potential. 


NOW!— Vic Dana— Dolton BLP2032 

Vic Dana, with a string of hit singles and al- 
bums to his credit, could do a fast repeat with 
this top-drawer session on Dolton tagged, “Now!” 
The warm-voiced songster offers lilting and lyri- 
cal readings of a bag of tuneful goodies including 
his current single noisemaker, “Frenchy.” Best 
bets here are “The Name Of The Game Is Love,” 
“On A Slow Boat To China” and “Love Is All 
We Need.” Dana fans should come out in strength 
for the set. 


FINIAN’S RAINBOW— Reprise Repertory Thea- 
ter — Reprise F2015 

The Reprise Repertory Theater comes up with 
an engaging disk revival of Harburg and Lane’s 
delightful “Finian’s Rainbow,” a show that never 
failed to charm theater-goers during the late 
40’s. Frank Sintara, Sammy Davis, Dean Martin, 
Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney and others 
turn in top-flight performances of such classic 
items as “How Are Things In Glocca Morra,” 
“Old Devil Moon,” “Look To The Rainbow” and 
“When I’m Near The Girl I Love.” Show buffs 
will find this version an interesting addition to 
the cast shelf. 

FROM HELLO DOLLY TO GOODBYE CHAR- 
LIE— Bobby Darin — Capitol ST 2194 

Bobby Darin, with a long string of hit singles 
and albums to his credit, could easily have his 
biggest to date on Capitol with this vibrant and 
pulsating collection of theater, film and original 
tunes he dishes up with verve and polish. The 
set has the same bounce that made “Mack The 
Knife” and “Beyond The Sea” sales giants — ^with 
good reason, the items were by the same ar- 
ranger, Dick Wess. “Once In A Lifetime,” “More” 
and “Sunday Tn New York” are bright bands. 
Chart status seems assured.

SEX AND the SIIIGLE GIRI^Original Sound- 
track — Neal Hefti — Warner Bros. 1572 

Neal Hefti has created a first-rate score for 
the soon-to-be released Tony Curtis-Natalie Wood 
flick vehicle. The music perfectly captures the 
spirit of the sophisticated comedy with elements 
of jazz, blues and classical constructions. In ad- 
dition to some fine background tracks (e. g. 
“Legs,” “Midnight Swim,” etc.) the disk boasts 
Fran Jeffries singing two choice items. LP should 
do real well when the film goes into general re- 
lease. 


C’MON AND S-W-I-M— Bobby Freeman— Au- 
tumn LP 102 

Bobby Freeman tags this initial Autumn album 
release after his recently runaway best-selling 
pop-r&b smash and includes eleven other potent, 
teen-angled danceable tracks. While backed by a 
swingin’ rhythmic ork and chorus, the songster 
shines on “Do The Monkey,” “I’ll Never Fall In 
Love Again” and “Walkin’ The Dog.” Eye the 
disk for rapid consumer acceptance. 


SOPHIA LOREN IN ROME— Orig TV Sound- 
track — Columbia OL 6310 

Columbia Records offers the original TV sound- 
track recording of the “Sophia Loren in Rome” 
special of a few weeks ago. With a score by John 
Barry and the actress singing the main theme, 
“Secrets Of Rome,” this set could emerge as best- 
seller in no time. Barry’s haunting main theme is 
one of the loveliest melodies of the season. The 
score is a bright and shining example of what 
can be done in the way of original TV music. 
Sales should soar. 


COUNTRY MUSIC FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T 
LIKE COUNTRY MUSIC— Clebanoff— Mercury 
SR60949 

Here’s a new orchestral offering from Cleba- 
noff on Mercury loaded with dual-market appeal. 
The country music buffs should appreciate these 
familiar old melodies and the pop fans the man- 
ner in which they are presented. Shimmering 
strings and driving rhythms combine effectively 
on “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I Walk The Line” 
and “Love Me Tender.” Top programming and 
sales potential. 


ALL THE SONG HITS OF THE 4 SEASONS— 
Bob Crewe — ^Philips PHS 600-150 

The lush 40-piece orchestra of Bob Crewe, 
capably conducted by Charles Calello, pays trib- 
ute to the 4 Seasons with this instrumental treat- 
ment of the famed group’s biggest hits. Crewe, 
who produced the lads’ past blockbusters, is 
eminently qualified to present these orchestral 
versions. Soaring strings and bouncing brass 
make for easy listening on “Rag Doll,” “Big 
Girls Don’t Cry,” and “Walk Like A Man.” 
Plenty of loot to be made here. 


POP BEST BETS 


INI 


RUNNIN’ OUT OF FOOLS— Aretha Franklin— 
Columbia CL 2281 

Aretha Franklin pulls out all the stops on this 
extremely varied collection of pop favorites, 
evergreens, r&b oldies and country items all 
rendered in her distinctive emotion-packed lyrical 
bluesey style. The lark’s rich, wide-range voice 
carries her in good stead on chorus-backed rendi- 
tions of “How Glad I Am,” “You’ll Lose A Good 
Thing” and “Two Sides Of Love.” One of the 
best disks that the artist has cut in quite a 
while. 


NOBODY ELSE BUT ME— Tommy Leonetti— 
RCA Victor LSP 2962 

Tommy Leonetti proves himself a master of 
the romantic ballad and the sophisticated show 
tune on this new package from RCA Victor. The 
songster pulls out all the stops here as the deft 
phrase, subtle lyric and vibrant melody are 
combined in a dozen top-drawer performances. 
Warmth and sincerity are exhibited throughout 
on such favorites as “She’s Just Another Girl,” 
“I’ll Get By,” “She Was Too Good For Me” and 
others equally potent. A superb vocal offering by 
the singer. Leonetti could strike gold with this 
set.

EYES FOR YOU— Ethel Ennis— RCA Victor 
LSP 2984 

Ethel Ennis has earned many laurels in the 
past with her distinctive jazz-blues vocal stylings 
but this new collection of sturdies ranks as her 
best showing to date. While backed by a swingin’ 
closely-knit combo, the songstress dishes-up top- 
flight renditions of “I Only Have Eyes For You,” 
“Almost Like Being In Love” and “Little Girl 
Blue.” A standout achievement.

SOME BLUE-EYED SOUL — Righteous Brothers 
— Moonglow MLP 1002 

The fans of the Righteous Brothers, and they 
are legion, should come out in droves for this 
rollicking Moonglow session which effectively 
spotlights the duo dishing-up a contagious bevy 
of hard-driving bluesers. Among the highlights of 
the power-packed set are “Baby, What You Want 
Me To Do,” “I Just Want To Make Love To You” 
and “Bring Your Love To Me.” Loads of potential 
here.

BIG BAND BEATLE SONGS— Bob Leaper— 
London SP 44056 

More and more albums are being produced that 
give further proof of the composing genius of 
Messers Lennon and McCartney. This phase 4 
stereo LP from London Records puts the spot- 
light on the band of Bob Leaper and the hits of 
the Beatles. The name Leaper may be unfamiliar 
at this point, but is unlikely to remain so for 
very long. These are potently arranged treat- 
ments of “All My Loving,” “She Loves You,” “A 
Hard Day’s Night” and others. Airtime could 
make the set a giant in short order. 



GENE BARRY SINGS OF LOVE AND THINGS 
—RCA Victor LSP 2975 

Gene Barry, better known as Bat Masterson, or 
more recently, Amos Burke, displays the flip 
side of his talent with this set of familiar love 
songs on RCA Victor. The actor-chanter has a 
big baritone voice and an easy casual delivery 
that is particularly effective on this program 
which includes “Just In Time,” “I’ll Be Seeing 
You” and “Oh, Lady Be Good.” Weekly TV ex- 
posure could spark plenty of interest in the 
album.

LLOYD THAXTON PRESENTS— Decca DL 
74594 

Much of the excitement of the tremendously 
popular syndicated Lloyd Thaxton television 
show is captured on this mostly instrumental 
offering which features some of the recent 
vintage teen hits played on the program. Thax- 
ton’s many young admirers should find loads of 
listening and/or terpsichorean pleasure in “My 
Boy Lollipop,” “House Of The Rising Sun” and 
“A Hard Day’s Night.” 


COMPOSER’S CHOICE — Johnny Nash — Argo 
4038 

Johnny Nash directs his musical attention at a 
famed collection of chestnuts on this excellent 
King Fleming and Will Jackson-arranged and 
conducted set from Argo. The chanter does not 
resort to gimmicks but reads each item in his 
distinctive straight-forward blues-tinged melodic 
style. Among the best listening bets here are 
“One For My Baby,” “Someone To Watch Over 
Me” and “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.” A most 
impressive entry. 


THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME 
VOLUME IV — Various Artists — Starday SLP 295 
Starday has done real well with the three 
previous albums in this series on this new 
two-disk collection featuring a stellar group 
of c&w luminaries (e.g. Patsy Cline, Buck 
Owens, George Jones, Jimmy Dean, etc.) reading 
a handsome sampling of all-time favorites should 
go a like success route. Attractive four-color, 
fold-out package should help spark sales. Set 
should make excellent Christmas gifts.

1964 NAPLES SONG FESTIVAL — Various 
Artists — London Int’l TW 91363 

Rapidly coming up as a close rival of the 
famed San Remo Song Festival is Naples 
music contest. This top-flight London entry fea- 
tures three Italian artists (Lello Caravaglios, 
Luisa Siri and Gianni Sorrentino) reading a 
dozen of the popular tunes at this year’s Festival. 
In addition to the winner, Domenico Modungo’s 
“Tu Si Na Cosa Grande,” outstanding tracks here 
are “Nord E Sud,” “Comme” and “Amore Mio.” 


JAZZ PICKS 


THE RETURN OF BUD POWELL— Roulette 
R 52116 

Bud Powell, away from the American disk 
scene for eight years, makes an impressive re- 
turn on this new jazz outing from Roulette. The 
pianist has been considered a leader in the field 
for many years, and his loyal coterie of admirers 
should welcome this first session. The master of 
the jazz ballad, Powell gives out with vibrant 
readings of “I Know That You Know,” “Someone 
To Watch Over Me,” “If I Loved You” and “Just 
One Of Those Things.”

THE JAZZ STORY — Various Artists — Capitol 
W 2137 

Here’s a deluxe five-LP set from Capitol called 
“The Jazz Story” that traces the development of 
American jazz from the very beginning. It’s a 
lengthy musical journey from New Orleans to 
Chicago to New York that spotlights dozens of 
jazz greats, many from the past forgotten by all 
but the serious jazzophiles, and many that are 
still spreading musical joy today. The jazz 
historian will find much of interest in the pack- 
age. 


A LOOK AT YESTERDAY— Stan Getz— Main- 
stream S 6025 

Here’s a nostalgic jazz offering (the sides 
here were cut in 1948) featuring Stan Getz, 
Gerry Mulligan, Wardell Gray and Jimmy Raney 
blowing up a storm in the heyday of the bop 
idiom. Although some of their progressions might 
seem a little old-fashioned to modern swingers, 
there’s plenty of good listening in “Diaper Pin,” 
“Interlude In Bebop” and “As I Live Bop.” A 
real collector’s item. 


NEW DIMENSIONS — American Jazz Ensemble 
—Epic LA 16040 

For those who like their jazz a few pegs above 
the status quo this swingin’ set featuring the 
American jazz Ensemble (a foursome composed 
of Bill Smith on clarinet, Johnny Eaton on piano, 
Richard Davis on bass and Paul Motian on 
drums) should be just the ticket. The group 
creates some off beat but extremely valid im- 
provisations on “It’s All Right With Me,” “Deep 
River” and “The Loneliest Monk.” Superior listen- 
ing throughout. 


CLASSICAL PICKS 


DVORAK: Humoresque; Leonard Pennario, pi- 
anist — RCA Victor LSC 2731 

Versatile keyboard stylist Leonard _ Pennano 
surveys the romantic classical tradition high- 
lighted by three different versions of “Humores- 
que” (Dvorak’s, Rachmaninoff’s and Tchai- 
kovsky’s) on this excellent entry from RCA Vic- 
tor. In addition to the above-mentioned works _Pen- 
nario’s lyrical, soaring approach is effectively 
spotlighted on selections by Schubert, Greig, 
Falla, etc. An outstanding classical outing. 


HANSEL AND GRETEL — Vienna Philharmonic/ 
Cluytens — Angel SBL 3648 

A traditional favorite of children during the 
Christmas season is Engelbert Humperdinck’s 
“Hansel And Gretel,” magnificently performed 
here on Angel by the Vienna Philharmonic with 
Andre Cluytens conducting, and a cast that in- 
cludes Anneliese Rothenberger, Walter Berry and 
Irmgard Seefried. Delightful too is the choral 
assist by the Vienna Boys Choir. “Hansel And 
Gretel” is a charming tale and an even more 
charming opera. Set is a choice item for Yule 
buyers.

WB Gets U.S. Rights 
To Pet Clark Disks 

BURBANK — Warner Bros. Records 
has obtained the U.S. distribution 
rights to diskings by Star songstress 
on the Continent, Petula Clark. Joe 
Smith, singles A&R chief, made the 
deal with Vogue Records of France 
during his recent trek abroad.

lark’s first singles appearance on 
the WB label, and was rushed to mar- 
ket last week.

lingual pei’former who has had par- 
ticularly notable success in England.

Col. Jazzist Takes 
Public Bow On TV 

NEW YORK — A new personality on 
the jazz scene has just been intro- 
duced on television — said to be a first 
for video. 

Artist is tenor saxist-flutist-com- 
poser Charles Lloyd, who was the bio 
subject of “Jazz Discovery: Charles 
Lloyd,” presented on the west coast 
on Nov. 16, here last week (26). 

The program, presented by National 
Educational Television, demonstrated, 
through conversation and music, 
Lloyd’s talent and examined the in- 
fluences that have shaped his develop- 
ment. 

Columbia Records has just released 
his first feature-role LP, “Discovery! 
Charles Lloyd.” Both the LP and 
show were produced by George 
Avakian, who also served as com- 
mentator on the program. He’s a 
current member of the Cannonball 
Adderley Sextet. 

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, the 
musician graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Southern California and 
shortly afterwards joined the Chico 
Hamilton Quintet, later becoming its 
musical director in charge of reper- 
toire and personnel. While Lloyd has 
been heard on previous LP’s, among 
them Columbia’s “Drumfusion,” for 
which he was also the sole composer. 

Filmed at KQED-TV in San Fran- 
cisco, without rehearsal, “Jazz Dis- 
covery: Charles Lloyd,” will be pre- 
sented on other stations throughout 
the country.

Five featuring Eugene Pitt, which it 
has set for immediate national re- 
lease on UA.

Kenton Heads Formation 
Of L.A. Neophonic Orch. 

HOLLYWOOD— Stan Kenton has an- 
nounced the formation of what is 
termed the world’s first permanently 
established resident orchestra dedi- 
cated to the contemporary musical 
idiom. The Los Angeles Neophonic 
Orchestra. It makes its debut in a se- 
ries of four concerts premiering at 
the New Music Center on Monday, 
Jan. 4. 

Kenton has curtailed all other ac- 
tivities to devote his time to the birth 
of the resident orchestra, which will 
draw from the world musical com- 
munity musicians of contemporary 
repertoire. He will serve as perma- 
nent music director of the orchestra 
and as guest conductor of the inaugu- 
ral season. 

Highlighting the premiere concert 
of the Los Angeles Neophonic Orches- 
tra will be the performance of Fried- 
rich Gulda’s “Concerto For Piano and 
Jazz Orchestra.” Gulda will fly from 
Vienna to Los Angeles expressly for 
this inaugural concert to perform as 
soloist. 

Kenton noted that while jazz solo- 
ists such as Benny Goodman have 
been featured in performance with 
symphonic orchestras, Gulda’s ap- 
pearance marks the first concert to 
feature an internationally recognized 
classical soloist with a jazz orchestra. 

The Neophonic Orchestra is spon- 
sored by The International Academy 
of Contemporary Music, a non-profit 
organization with Kenton as its pres- 
ident; George Grief, vice-president; 
and Sid Garris, secretary-treasurer. 

With the formation of the Los An- 
geles Neophonic Orchestra as the first 
step in their goal, the Academy seeks 
the establishment of similar Neo- 
phonic orchestras internationally. The 
Academy further seeks to encourage 
the composition and performance of 
contemporary music by musicians 
capable of its execution and will 
serve as a clearing house for contem- 
porary music, musicians and infor- 
mation. Ultimately, the Academy 
seeks to inaugurate scholarships, 
commissions and competitions to the 
greatest extent that public and pri- 
vate support will allow. 

Kenton, appearing at a press con- 
ference here last week with Grief and 
Garris, announced that such musical 


Sarah Vaughan Solos With Chi Symphony 



CHICAGO — Sarah Vaughan made her first appearance as a soloist with one 
of the world’s major symphony orchestras when she appeared on Nov. 21 with 
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 

The lark opened the orchestra’s Popular Concert Series of the season as a 
special guest artist in a program entitled, “An Evening With Gershwin.” 
Skitch Henderson, music director of the NBC web, made his first appearance 
as guest conductor of the symphony in the all-Gershwin program. 

Following the successful Windy City concert. Mercury Records hosted a 
reception in honor of the songstress at the Sheraton-Chicago’s Kon Tiki Ports 
Restaurant. The bash was attended by members of the press, radio, the 
label’s local distributor and company executives. Shown (left to right) at 
the affair are Mercury vice-president Kenneth S. Myers, the lark, CB’s Lee 
Brooks, Mrs. Myers and Irwin H. Steinberg, the label’s executive vice- 
president. 


Assn. Looms For Chi Music Men 



CHICAGO — A Midwestern Music 
Men’s Association is in the works 
here. Primary aim of the organiza- 
tion is to offset a “decline” of the 
Windy City’s pop recording business. 

Recently, 25 Chicago music men 
met for the first time to organize the 
group. It’s the brain-child of Ewart 
Abner, head of Constellation Records 
and Paul Wyatt, Columbia’s studio 
sales manager. 

In key-noting the first gathering, 
Wyatt noted Chicago’s past standing 
as a pop music center and the lack of 
present-day organization of all music 
men in the mid-west to more effec- 
tively direct its future. 

A motion was made and passed to 
formally organize and select a guid- 
ance committee. A second meet has 
been set for this Tues. (1) at the 
Avenue Motel’s Red Room at 1 PM. 

The committee was set to meet 
prior to Dec. 1 to propose and deter- 
mine policy, nominate officers for a 
vote to be held at the second gather- 
ing. 

The committee is composed of: Ab- 
ner, Esmond Edwards of Chess Rec- 
ords, Bob Kidder, engineer at Univer- 
sal Studios, Carl Proctor, an indie 
promo man, Ralph Bass, indie pro- 
ducer, and Carl Davis of Epic-Okeh. 


names as Bill Holman, Hugo Monte- 
negro, Marty Paich, Johnny Richards 
and Lalo Schifrin had been commis- 
sioned to compose original works for 
the Neophonic Orchestra. Kenton, too, 
will be represented by the world pre- 
miere of one of his compositions in 
a repertoire to include a work by 
Pete Rugulo. 

Following the January Fourth pre- 
miere, remaining Monday night con- 
certs in the inaugural series will be 
on February 1, March 1 and March 
29. 


WB Inks Paul Sykes 

BURBANK — Paul Sykes, folk vocalist 
and comic out of the west coast, has 
been inked to an exclusive disk pact 
by Warner Bros. Records. He’ll go to 
bat for the label for the first time via 
an LP cut “live” at the Ice House 
in Pasadena, Calif. As part of its 
long-range plans for the performer, 
WB will concentrate activities on his 
behalf in the pop area as well as the 
folk field. 


Surgery For Don Robey 

HOUSTON— Don Robey, head of the 
Duke and Peacock labels, underwent 
surgery in Houston’s Saint Luke 
Hospital last week (23). The nature 
of the operation was not disclosed,

planned hunting excursions.

Phono Soles Climb In Sepf. 
Fails To Bridge '63-64 Gap 

WASHINGTON — Monthly sales of 
phonographs moved sharply upward 
in Sept, at both distrib and factory 
outlets and totals for all but one 
model category bettered those for the 
same month in 1963, but the gains 
failed to close the gap between cumula- 
tive sales for the three quarters of 
this year and the same period in 1963, 
the Electronic Industries Association 
reported last week. 

The single lag was in distributor 
sales of portable/table phonos, which 
totaled 410,097 in Sept, against 413,- 
003 during that month in 1963. Sales 
of console models by distribs stood at 
214,947 in September, exceeding the 
178,691 sold in September 1963. 

Cumulative distrib sales for the first 
three quarters of this year totaled 
1,844,422 portable/ table models and 
1,109,039 consoles, compared with 
2,030,434 portable/tables and 1,027,059 
during the same period last year. 

At the factory, 505,186 portable/ 
table phonos were sold in September 
against 490,319 during September 
1963, while sales of consoles totaled 
243,486 units this year and 212,372 
last. 

Factory sales of portable/table 
models at the end of the January- 
September period this year totaled 
2,044,064, compared with 2,212,588 
during the comparable 1963 period. 
Console sales during the same period 
stood at 1,136,428 and 1,147,889, re- 
spectively.

Manfred Mann Men 
To Make First U.S. Visit 

NEW YORK — Manfred Mann, the 
hot British fivesome who are cur- 
rently burning the Top 100 with “Sha 
La La” on the Ascot label, a follow- 
up to their number one hit, “Do Wah 
Diddy Diddy,” arrived at New 
York’s Kennedy Airport on Dec. 1. 
The group with the all-purpose name 
then devoted four days to record 
promotion and publicity before kick- 
ing off their cross-country tour on 
Dec. 5, with a concert at the Academy 
of Music in New York. 

Manfred Mann will fly directly to 
Los Angeles from England on Nov. 
27 to tape two “Shindig” shows. 
United Artists Records and ABC-TV

sters while in L. A. The boys will 
then plane to New York.

states, the midwest, Florida and Can- 
ada during their two-week one-

NEW YORK— Kik Kodama, branch 
manager for the Craig Corp. in Hono-

He was responsible for the sales of 
Columbia and Epic production and

(Continued from page 6) 

singing three songs, including “Ru- 
dolph.” 

Added to the new tunes are five 
previous Marks’ compositions, which 
will be part of the background score. 

Written for the production are “A 
Holly Jolly Christmas,” recorded by 
Ives (Decca), Quinto Sisters (Colum- 
bia), and the Do-Re-Mi Singers 
(Kapp); “Jingle Jingle Jingle,” “The 
Most Wonderful Day of the Year,” 
cut by the Quinto Sisters, “We are 
Santa’s Elves,” also waxed by the 
Quintos, “Silver and Gold,” recorded 
by the Do-Re-Mi Singers, “We’re a 
Couple of Misfits.” 

From Marks’ St. Nicholas catagos 
comes “I Heard the Bells on Christ- 
mas Day,” “Rockin’ Around the 
Christmas Tree,” “The Night Before 
Christmas Song,” “When Santa Claus 
Gets Your Letter” and “A Merry 
Merry Christmas.” The program was 
produced by Videocraft in three di- 
mensional animation for the General 
Electric Co. 

Since his birth 15 years ago, “Ru- 
dolph” has sold more than 40 million 
disks and some 3 million sheet music 
copies. This season has realized 15 
new disk versions, which gives the 
song a current total of more than 300 
disk readings. 

The first one — still a big seller — 
was by Gene Autry, whose version 
has sold 6 million copies, Columbia 
Records’ all-time singles seller. “Ru- 
dolph” has been published in 95 dif- 
ferent arrangements for orchestra, 
band, choral and instrumental use. 
Also, its lyrics appear in a number of 
foreign tongues. 

As for Marks’ other Holiday stand- 
ards, there are two new diskings of 
“I Heard the Bells on Christmas 
Day,” done by Frank Sinatra and 
Fre(l Waring, both on Reprise. The 
original waxings was made in 1956 by 
Bing Crosby. “Rockin’ Around the 
Christmas Tree,” one of the few teen- 
angled Yuletide standards, was orig- 
inally done by Brenda Lee (Decca) 
in 1960 and is a Decca re-issue once 
more. 

Other Yuletide creations by Marks 
include the “Christmas Community 


Victor Readies Sylvie Vartan 
For Assault On U.S. Market 

NEW YORK — RCA Victor is prepar- 
ing the American disk career of 
French “YeYe” Girl Sylvie Vartan. 
Details of the launching were made 
known at a recent press meet with 
the lark at the Hotel Pierre. The 
songstress, who wound up a 10-day 
wax session last week at Victor’s 
studios, will have a debut album and 
single for issue in Jan. A&R director 
Joe Rene produced the sessions. 

The youthful songstress (she’s 20) 
in the past few years has soared to 
the top of the pop music heap in 
France with her Victor etchings 
which are nearing the five million 
mark. A regular on the bill of the 
famed Olympia Theatre, she has ap- 
peared with the Beatles and Trini 
Lopez and a host of other European 
rock and roll idols. 

In 1965, the petite blonde will make 
her film debut for 20th Century Fox 
in “Patate.” She is under contract to 
the film company for six pictures. 

During her recent visit, Sylvie 
journeyed to New York’s Apollo The- 
atre, which she considers a “Mecca” 
for all European artists who want to 
make the grade in this country. She 
also remarked that the fame of the 
Apollo in Europe is widespread, along 
with its regular headliners. 

Sharing the rock spotlight with 
Sylvie are “Ye Ye Girls” Sheila and 
Francoise Hardy, and chanter Johnny 
Halliday who’s currently doing his 
stint in the French Army. 

Exposure for new pop disks is 
much more limited in France than in 
this country, remarked the singer. A 
few hours a week are set aside for 
TV and radio airing, with the selec- 
tion of the decks in the hands of one 
key individual, magazine publisher 
Daniel Filipacchi, who’s also a deejay. 

Teenagers are required to buy the- 
ater tickets to see their idols, and 
they are much better behaved in the 
presence of their favorites — there is 
no yelling and screaming when artists 
are performing their hits on stage. In 
addition to stage exposure, rock and 
roll artists and their hit disks are 
popular in France’s many disco- 
theques, which have been the rage 
there for the last ten years. 

Sylvie Vartan is also responsible 
for setting fashion trends among her 
legions of admirers in France. The 
sloppy look that has become the trade- 
mark of many American and British 
performers is strictly taboo and has 
been replaced with the clean, scrubbed 
look and neat attire. 

In Jan., when the first Vartan 
single and album are unveiled by 
RCA Victor, Sylvie will return to the 
U. S. for promotional visits, TV ap- 
pearances and a possible coast-to- 
coast tour. 

In the past, European perfformers 
who’ve attempted to “crash” the 
American disk market, found it a 
tough nut to crack — even with disks 
done in phonetic English. Sylvie Var- 
tan is determined to sing in English 
because R&R is traditionally Ameri- 
can, and rock tunes are most com- 
fortable when delivered in English. 
Victor brass believes Sylvie Vartan is 
the gal that can do it here.

Nat'l Country Music Month 
Winds Up Successfully 

NASHVILLE — National Country 
Music Month (Nov.) has been a most 
successful promotion for country mu- 
sic. Stations around the country have 
made effective use of the disk con- 
taining some 45 spots sent to them by 
the Country Music Association. 

Special country albums were re- 
leased by many labels commemorating 
the month. In fact, the promotion was 
international with special activities in 
Canada and other countries outside 
the U. S. 

One of the special promotions for 
Country Music Month was the origi- 
nation of the Jimmy Dean Show from 
Nashville. This special program fea- 
tured Eddy Arnold, Ernest Tubb and 
his Texas Troubadours, Minnie Pearl, 
Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs and the 
Foggy Mountain Boys, Chet Atkins, 
Dottie West, the Jordannaires, the 
Stoney Mountain Cloggers, Floyd 
Cramer, Grady Martin, Harold Brad- 
ley, Buddy Harmon, Joe Zinkan, Eay 
Edenton, and Walter Haynes, as was 
shown on ABC-TV on Nov. 5. 

WSM’s Country Music Festival and 
the celebration of the 39th birthday 
of the Grand Ole Opry, BMI’s awards 
presentations, the trade paper awards, 
CMA’s annual membership meeting 
and election, the premieres of “Your 
Cheatin’ Heart” and CMA’s sixth an- 
niversary dinner-dance were other 
highlights of the month.

COUNTRY 
ROUND UP 


A full-scale presentation on the 
growth and development of country 
music was presented last week by 
KSON-San Diego to the city’s Adver- 
tising and Sales Club. It was pat- 
tern^ after the presentation made to 
the Sales Executive Club in New York 
City by the Country Music Associa- 
tion. Vet Capitol songster- writer 
Tommy Collins emceed the affair, 
which featured a host of countiy per- 
sonalities, and nan'ated a story titled 
“Country Music Comes Down Out Of 
The Hills.” Dozens of prizes from 
clients who use country music adver- 
tising and from the outlet were given 
away in contests at the luncheon. 


play Otis Air Force Base, Mass., on 
Nov. 28. 

Country singer Alfred Witherow 
has been appointed ABS Records rep 
in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. 
The label, which was recently pur- 
chased by Howard Rash from Jim 
Small, makes its headquarters in Wil- 
mington, Del. 

It was a real pleasure speaking to 
Sonny James who phoned in last week 
from South Bend. The Southern Gen- 
tleman is really pleased with action 
of his new Capitol deck of “You’re 
The Only World I Know.” Sonny, who 
still has that “Young Love” fervor.

which was open for both agencies and 
clients. 


hopes the record will develop into a 
huge pop hit also. 


The “Country Music U.S.A.” na- 
tionwide contest sponsored by the 
Country Music Records Club of Amer- 
ica stacked up as a tremendous suc- 
cess. The lucky winner (he signed up 
over 50 new Club members plus his 
guest for the trip) received an all- 
expense paid trip to the Country Mu- 
sic Deejay Festival in Nashville. They 
were escorted through all the festivi- 
ties by the Record Club’s gal Friday 
Cindy Lou and her chaperone, Suzanne 
Mathis of Starday. They, of course, 
were assisted by all the Starday and 
Record Club crew as well. 

The Bill Anderson troupe recently 
played to two record-breaking crowds. 
On Nov. 13, the Anderson troupe, 
along with Loretta Lynn, broke an all- 
time house attendance record at the 
East Point Auditorium, East Point, 
Georgia, doing tum-away business. 
The following night, the show which 
features Jimmy Gateley and the Po’ 
Boys band, was part of the giant spec- 
tacular at the coliseum in Charlotte, 
N. C., which attracted 13,000 country 
music fans. Both were the largest 
crowds ever for each auditorium. 


Gene Guthrie, program director of 
KHEY-El Paso, sends along word 
that the station is bringing in a Grand 
Ole Opry show to Liberty Hall in El 
Paso on Dec. 11, consisting of Marty 
Robbins, the Canadian Sweethearts, 
Neal Merritt, Lucille Star, Don Win- 
ters, the Teardrops and the String of 
Pearls bands. . . . Gene also notes 
that Uncle Virgil Bond has returned 
to KHEY. He’ll be handling the morn- 
ing 5:00-10:00 AM shift. 

The Clyde Beavers Show, starring 
Clyde Beavers and the Eager Beavers 
and Sudie Gallaway, is scheduled to

KCLE-Clebume, Texas’ Gene Royall 
infos word that the station is playing 
a whole lot of country music these 
days. The only problem is that the 
outlet is a little short on new releases. 
Gene promises that they’ll give all 
platters a good spin. 

James O’Gwynn has just finished a 
successful engagement at the Pon- 
derosa Club in Des Moines working 
for vet deejay-promoter Smokey 
Smith. The chanter is now headed 
South and West, and in the coming 
weeks, he’ll be playing a string of key 
dates in California and New Mexico. 

Joel Hurley, program director of 
KLUR-Wichita Falls, is really tootin’ 
his horn there days about the sta- 
tion’s new format. Station, which is 
the first country FM’er in the south- 
west, holds the distinction of being 
one of the very few country and west- 
ern broadcasting stations in the en- 
tire nation. Joel sez that they pro- 
gram the music around a conventional 
AM format, including hourly news, 
half-hour headlines, weather, com- 
munity “Bull-Board,” mobile news re- 
ports etc. Since they are a new sta- 
tion they are in dire need of promo 
decks. 

Vet deejay-artist Jim McCoy is back 
again spinning ’em on WINC-Win- 
chester where he began his career 
17 years ago. Jim comes to WINC 
from a similar stint on WABH-Deer- 
field. 

Sam Short, Jr. invites platter spin- 
ners to write him for new releases by 
Billy Wallace, Howard Vokes, Rose 
and Dixie and Rudy Thacker. All re- 
quests should be sent on station let- 
terheads to Sam at 4 Center St., Har- 
rington, Delaware. 

Bobby Lewis is real proud of the 
new trademark he is sportin’ these 
days. It’s a lute and he introduced it 
recently on an Ernest Tubb “Midnight 
Jamboree Show.” Chances are that 
Bobby is the only country artist in 
the world playing the instrument.

SUMMER, WINTER, SPRING & FALL (2:40) 

[Moss-Rose BMI — Drusky, MacAlpin] 

ROY DRUSKY (Decca 31717) 

Roy Drusky seems sure to create plenty of sales excitement with this 
first-rate hitsville-loomer cut during his days with Decca. The side to 
watch here is “Almost Can’t,” a tender, shuffle-beat, bluegrass-styled 
tearjerker about an unfortunate fella who can’t get over the heartbreak 
of his ex-romance. The attractive coupler, “Summer, Winter, Spring And 
Fall,” is a pretty, lyrical, chorus-backed lament rendered with loads of 
feeling by the songster. 


FALLING LEAVES (2:22) [G.J. BMI— Jones] 

HERE COMES THE CHAMPION (2:09) [Tunesmith BMI— Rause] 

GRANDPA JONES (Monument 866) 

Grandpa Jones could well have another “T For Texas” on his hands 
with this latest winner’s circle-aimed item labeled “Falling Leaves.” The 
self-penned tune is a medium-paced, dual-track ode which states that the 
golden rule is the only way to live. “Here Comes The Champion” is a 
rousing, high-spirited, rhythmic ditty about the benefits of ridin’ on a 
very special train. 


HELLO DOLL [Cave/LeBill BMI — Smith, Hausey] 

UNCLE RED [La Belle BMI— Hilderbrand] 

ORVILLE COUCH (Vee Jay 631) 

Orville Couch has had hits in the oast and he can score again with 
this top-flight new Vee Jay entry tabbed “Hello Doll.” The tune is an 
easy-going, rhythmic ode all about a guy who attempts to pick up the 
girl of his dreams. Eye it. The flip, “Uncle Red,” is a rousing, high- 
spirited, chorus-backed affair about a good-natured old timer who found 
the secret of a happy life. 


BIG CITY (2:03) [Sure-Fire BMI — Williams, Humphrey] 
WATCH ME FALL (2:40) [Eighty Eight Keys BMI— Whittington, Pierce]

MARGIE BOWES (Decca 31708) 

Margie Bowes can establish herself on a national basis with this 
power-packed newie tagged “Big City.” The tune is a rhythmic, shufflin’ ^ - ■ 
chorus-backed lament about a country gal who blames city life for taking 
her guy away from her. The coupler, “Watch Me Fall,” is a plaintive, 
slow-moving, chorus-backed song about a lass who finally meets up with 
that very special man of her dreams. j 


JAY P. MAYTON (Nashville 5199) 

(B-t-) TWO LITTLE DROPS OF 
WATER (2:03) [Widow, BMI 
— Houston] Jay P. Mayton unleashes 
his potent, wide-range vocal talents 
full-blast on this swingin’ chorus- 
backed folk-styled tearjerker with a 
top-notch, rhythmic beat. Deejays 
should really dig it. 

(B) MY HEART’S MY DAILY 
REMINDER (2:44) [Widow, 
BMI— B. & D. West] Pretty, slow- 
moving lament about a fellow who 
can’t stop singin’ the blues since his 
romance went on the rocks. 


JOANN JOHNSON (Del-Mar 1024) 

(B) I TOOK THE HAPPINESS 

OUT OF A HOME (2:45) 
[Didrite, BMI — J. & E. Johnson] Jo- 
ann Johnson might well create some 
noise with this slow-moving, blue- 
grass-flavored, chorus-backed tear- 
jerker in a tradition-oriented country 
vein. Watch it closely. 

(B) WHY MEET SOMEBODY 

NEW (2:40) [Didrite, BMI —

up an appealing medium-paced weep-

her guy.

Top German Singer Freddy, a legend in his own lifetime, enjoys a unique position in the hearts of the German people. Statistically, too, his success story is equally phenomenal 
—seven gold disks for seven millmn records sold of six hit titles in seven consecutive years from 1956 to 1963. This versatile ex-sailor has cut his hits in many languages including 
Africaans, Japanese and Finnish. He is also a talented actor with many stage and screen successes to his credit. His latest film has a circus background in which Freddy personally per- 
forms several acrobatic acts, ales of h.s currerrt smash “Vergabgen Vergessenm Voruber (Vanished, Forgotten, Gone By)” are fast approaching the million mark and his eighth gold 
disk. Freddy records exclusively for the Polydor label.

Many of Columbia Records’ top artists in America are 
recording their hits in a variety of languages. As a result, 
stars such as Andy Williams, The Brothers Four, Dion 
Di Muci, Eydie Gorme, Steve Lawrence and The New 
Christy Minstrels are as popular in Italy, Spain, Ger- 


many, France, Latin America, Japan and Israel as they 
are at home and in other English speaking countries. 
Breaking the language barrier is one of the most fascinat- 
ing aspects of CBS Records’ international operation. 
CBS Records / Entertaining the Entire World ^ 






Philips Records Ltd. will, in future, release VeeJay product on the Fontana 
label. The announcement came from Leslie Gould, general manager of Philips 
and Randy Wood, president of VeeJay Records at a special press conference 
following the conclusion of the world wide agreement. The deal also includes 
material issued on Veejay’s subsidiary labels, Tollie, Fame, Gold Wax and 
Nola. Gould told Cash Box that he was particularly happy to inherit the pow- 
erful VeeJay catalog of authentic rhythm and blues and gospel material at a 
time when British artists were simulating this kind of music with increasing 
success both in the charts and sales. VeeJay has one of the strongest gospel 
and spiritual catalogs in the United States and boasts such artists as John Lee 
Hooker, Jimmy Re^, Damito Jo, Betty Everett, Sam Fletcher and Little Rich- 
ard. 

Randy Wood plans to visit Europe frequently in order to keep in touch with 
trends, acquire material for the United States release and sign local artists. 
First VeeJay releases on the Fontana label are “Blueberry Hill” by Little 
Richard; “Getting Mighty Crowded” by Betty Everett and “Something’s Got A 
Hold” by Don and Alleyne Cole. 

The Decca Record Company is pulling out all the stops in a mammoth pro- 
motional campaign for their magnificent “Churchill Speaks” series of 12 LPs 
from private recordings, war memoirs, speeches etc. of Sir Winston Churchill. 
Release date is November 30th, Sir Winston’s 90th birthday. The product was 
introduced at a special press conference. Two thirds of the recordings, which 
are contained in a luxury presentation album together with a 60-page illu- 
strated book, have never been heard before and the complete set represents 
eleven hours of listening. The retail price is £25 but Decca, conscious of the high 
price and the fact that there is likely to be a tremendous demand, have com- 
mendably introduced for the first time a short term credit system whereby the 
set can be purchased for 25 guineas payable as a deposit of £4. 4. 0. followed by 
six monthly payments of £3. 13. 6d. 

Decca A & R managers Hugh Mendl and Michael Barclay, responsible for 
the recordings, spent over twelve months on the research and construction. 
American sales are expected to result in fantastic export orders. 

Mrs. Isabella Wallich, director of Delyse Records, recently visited Ireland 
for the launching of a new pop single by Dermot O’Brien, “My Shoes Keep 
Walking Back To You.” The disk was cut in London with a specially selected 
group of 18 classical musicians who created a new ‘pop’ sound. Dermot, already 
established as Ireland’s top TV star has achieved considerable success there 
with his Delyse albums. The company plans to sign new choirs and artists in 
order to extend their Irish catalog. 

A new group, The Mark Leeman Five, made their first appearance on tour 
with Manfred Mann and The Soul Sisters. The group enter show business with 
the blessing of Manfred Mann who discovered them. They also record for Man- 
frediscs for release by EMI. Their first single is in the can and set for Janu- 
ary release. 

Having achieved international success with “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” and 
winning themselves a Cash Box International Gold Trophy for getting the num- 
ber to the top of the American Top 100, Manfred Mann, look like they’ll do 
the same thing for their current release, “Sha La La,” which is shooting up 
the American charts. Manfred Mann arrived in America on Nov. 28th for an 
extensive tour with fellow Britishers Peter and Gordon. On December 21 they 
have a week of cabaret back in England at La Dolce Vita — the famous North- 
ern nitery. Early in January the group leave for their first tour of Australia 
and New Zealand calling at Singapore, Hong Kong and India. They will be 
accompanied by their manager, Ken Pitt. 

Application for exemption from the provisions of resale price maintenance 
were lodged with the Registrar of Restrictive Trading Agreements recently 
on behalf of British Record Manufacturers. 

Robert Mellin Ltd. happy with the continued success of “Remember (Walk- 
ing In The Sand)” by The Shangri-Las. Same pubbery has new disk by The 
Escorts “I Don’t Want To Go On Without You” released on Fontana. The 
number is also included on Dave Berry’s current HMV album. 

Chappells expects a major hit with the score of Walt Disney’s film “Mary 
Poppins,” which has its London premiere on December 20th. Releases include 
a double ‘a’ single shared by the stars of the show. Julie Andrews sings “A 
Spoonful of Sugar” coupled with “Chim Chim Cheree” by Dick Van Dyke re- 
leased on HMV. Mary Martin has recorded “Spoonful of Sugar” and “Feed the 
Birds” on London and Burl Ives covers “Chim Chim Cheree” on Brunswick. A 
jazz LP of the film is available by Duke Ellington on Reprise and an EP has 
been waxed by Norrie Paramor on Columbia. 

Another film score handled by Chappells is the much heralded “My Fair 
Lady,” due here in January. Heading an impressive list of releases is Andy 
Williams’ “On The Street Where You Live” and the soundtrack LP both on 
the CBS label. The same pubbery has the new British musical “Robert and 
Elizabeth” by Ron Grainer and Ronald Miller. The original London cast album 
featuring June Bronhill, John Clements and Keith Michell is now issued on 
HMV. 

Tony D’amato, A & R manager for London Records, now based in England 
working from Decca Records currently in the States accompanying MD Johnny 
Keating who is on a three-week promotional tour taking in all major cities. His 
latest album “The Keating Sound” has just been issued on London. 

Essex Music very happy to have Matt Monro’s next single “For Mamma” on 
Parlophone. This is an English version of the Charles Aznavour French hit, 
“La Mamma,” with new words by Matt’s manager Don Black. Matt is currently 
having a huge success with “Walk Away” originally a Belgian copyright 
“Warum nur Warum” for which Don Black penned the new lyrics. Essex also 
has the next Searchers single on Pye “What Have They Done To The Rain.” 
The composer is 64 year old Malvina Reynolds, who penned the hit number 
“Little Boxes.” 

Rave notices greeted the London Premiere of American musical “Little Me” 
and brought overnight triumph for TV personality Bruce Forsythe making his 
West End stage debut in the leading role. The London cast album is being 
issued on Pye and The King Brothers have waxed their version of “Real Live 
Girl” for Oriole. Score is handled here by Edwin H. Morris. 

ClifiF Richard and The Shadows just back from a highly successful nation 
wide tour now rehearsing their Christmas pantomime, “Aladdin,” which goes 
into the London Palladium. Advance bookings are the highest in the history 
of the Palladium. The score of “Alladin” has been penned by The Shadows and 
Cliff’s current single “I Could Easily Fall” on Columbia comes from the show. 
The soundtrack LP is also issued on Columbia. 

Quickies: Following up “The Wedding,” Julie Rogers waxes “Like A Child” 
for Mercury published by Shapiro Bernstein . . . Latest Brian Poole and the 
Tremeloes’ single on Decca “The Three Bells” — the old standard made famous

The San Remo Song Festival For 1965 has sparked strong interest through- 
out the whole of the international disk industry; last year many record execs 
and top foreign artists were at first skeptical about promotional results of this 
contest, however the whole of the international industry was forced to admit 
the plug possibilities of this musical event. As a result many foreign execs 
are coming to Italy to discuss the participation of their artists at San Remo. 
Joe Giannini, of CGD International, received a visit from Joh Nathan European 
coordinator of MGM who assured the participation of Roy Hamilton, Paul 
Tanner, producer of Johnny Tillotson also visited Joe Giannini, to study a 
promotional plan for Tillotson in Italy, and the possible participation of the 
singer in the contest. i 

Phonogram has confirmed its participation in the next San Remo Festival of 
two great stars: Dionne Warwick of USA, and Dusty Springfield the first 
Britisher definitely pacted for presentation on the San Remo stage. 

Other visitors of the week were Mr. Benati and Mr. Cowan who discussed 
with CGD International the renewal of the agreement for the distribution in 
Italy of all the 20th Century Fox productions. They were followed by Mike 
Maitland prexy of Warner Bros.-Reprise, and Joe Smith A/R Manager who 
visited SAAR and CGD International during their trip to Europe. 

The Committee responsible for the selection of the songs that this year will 
be presented on the stage of the Casino of San Remo during the next Festival, 
have elected today 35 songs among the various hundreds presented by pub- 
lishers. During this week the committee will select the 24 songs that will take 
part in the contest 1965. 

Next week we will be able to advise our readers of the songs selected and 
the singing stars that will definitely be present on the stage of San Remo next 
January 28, 29 and 30. In fact the definitive choice of the interpreters both 
Italians and foreigns, is strictly subordinated to the selection of the songs to be 
presented. In any case it seems definitively confirmed that Paul Anka, Neil 
Sedaka, Alain Barriere, Dalida, Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield, Petula 
Clark, Elke Sommer, Les Surfs, Udo Jurgens, and so on, will stress the great 
importance of the 1965 contest, not only on the Italian, but also on the Euro- 
pean and World music market. 

We have received news of the refusal of Richard Anthony: the EMI artist 
has advised he will not take part in the Festival. 

Aifiong definite participators in the next San Remo Festival there is a 
German talent, Udo Jurgens. This young singer seems to have found the way 
to success in our market. Udo revealed himself at the European TV contest 
1964, where he offered the German song “Warum Nur Warum” (originally 
published by Edition Montana). Now this number, under the Italian title 
“Peccato Che Sia Finita Cosi’ ” serves to introduce Udo to our public: Udo has 
recently recorded the Italian version of the German hit, and his record, pro- 
moted and distributed by Saar has immediately gone on the charts and is now 
listed among the first twelve top selling records in our hit parade. “Warum 
Nur Warum” is sub-published in Italy by Edizioni RCA Italiana. 

And now some news from the publishing branch of Durium: Their recent 
hit “Angelita Di Anzio,” which was for many weeks at the top of our charts 
thanks to the recording of Los Marcellos Ferial, has been recorded in Germany 
by Karel (lott (the number is sub-published in Germany by Edition Montana) 
Karel Gott will present this Italian hit on one of the most popular German TV 
shows “Werner Mueller Schlager-Magazin.” 

We take the occasion of our recent visit in Rome to the Film Studios of 
Dino De Laurentiis to introduce the Music Publishing activity of this big firm. 
Dino De Laurentiis must be considered as one of the greatest European film 
producer. He started with his own music publishing company in June 1957. 

Head of the Publishing Branch of Dino De Laurentiis is Sergio Montori, 
with Gabriella Natali. We had the pleasure of meeting both of them during 
the visit to the films production center and head offices of Dino De Laurentiis 
located at Via Pontinia Km 23, in Rome. 

Principal activity of the music publishing De Laurentiis consists of course in 
editing and producing musical sound-tracks for the De Laurentiis’ films. 

While usually in Italy the film niusic sound-track is produced only after 
the motion picture is completed in the visual part, the music publishing Dino 
De Laurentiis is the only one in Italy who is working in strict connection with 
both writer and scenographer of the film, creating the musical background of 
the film along with the arrangement of the scenes. This permits of course a 
commercial exploitation of film as promotional media of the music and the 
songs which are included in the soundtrack. 

This is the first time that such a system is practical in our market, because 
usually, since composer and publisher thanks to our copyright law, are directly 
involved in the earnings of the film, they are not stimulated to compose music 
commercially suitable for their films. 

The music publishing branch of De Laurentiis is also charged for the dis- 
cographic exploitation of the film music, which is released at any time in strict 
connection with the various Italian record firms. 

As an example we wish to mention the recent releases of Dino De Laurentiis: 
“Per Una Notte No” sung by Gianni Morandi on the RCA label. The song is 
included in the film sound^track of the motion picture “La Mia Signora” (My 
Wife) starring Alberto Sordi and Silvana Mangano. The number is one of the 
most recent success of Gianni Morandi. 

With EMI Italiana, Dino De Laurentiis released a record from the original 
soundtrack of the motion picture “11 Maestro Di Vigevano” also starring 
Alberto Sordi. Under the Ariel label, owned by Gaetano Pulvirenti, De Lau- 
rentiis produced a song derived from the sound track of the film “H Piacere Ed 
II Mistero” which is a success in our country. The background music of the 
film “L’ idea Fissa” is released on the label Carosello, of Curci, while an album 
containing the background music of “H Diavolo” was produced under the CAM 
label distributed by Durium. 

Among the new productions of De Laurentiis we wish to stress out the 
sound-track of the big motion picture “The Bible” still in production, and the 
back-ground music of the film “The Three Faces,” in which Princess Soraya 
will make her debut as a film actress. 

Peppino Di Capri is considered as one of the most successful singers on the 
record market. He started his career as a singer 5 years ago and until today 
his record sales have now reached a total of 6,000,000 of disks. 

For 5 years Di Capri has been listed on the charts. The announcement of the 
6 million records sold by Peppino Di Capri was made by Carisch S.P.A., the 
record firm which discovered and introduced the talent of Peppino, in occasion 
of the release of the 8th album by the singer. 

An event that will put Peppino Di Capri among the greatest record stars 
not only of Italy, but of Europe. The huge success which the Italian artist has 
obtained in different countries like Germany, France, Spain, Japan, Argentina, 
Brasil and so on is phenomenal. 

The titles included in the new album of Peppino are all his recent success 
like “Solo Due Righe,” “Ti Pentirai,” “Perche’,” “Topless,” “Forse Lo So,” 
“Sc Ti Senti Sola,” “leri,” “E’un’ora Che Ti Aspetto,” “Didi Da Didi Du,” 
“lo No” “Boom! Boom! Surf,” “Chiove.” 



Christmas records have started selling in Tokyo and other major cities, but 
dealers do not_ expect much for this season. A record cannot sell simply r 
with good-looking jacket or with advertisement to inspire the mood of the 
season. Now it is the _ time for recording companies to compete with each 
other through the quality of music itself, a retailer commented. 

Nippon Victor is releasing on Dec. 5 a special LP with the jacket consisting 
of a 1965 calendar printed. It’s a collection of Pat Boone’s hits including “I’ll 
See You In My Dreams” for January, “Cherry Pink” for March, “April Love” 
for April, “September Song” for September, “Ave Maria” for December and 
others. 

Shinsekai Records had a party at Togyo Kaikan, Tokyo to celebrate the first ♦ 
release of a Chinese record in a Japanese version, of which the tape was de- 
livered to the company through a book dealer of Chinese materials and a . 
Chinese trade company, Chugoku Shohen Koji. ' 

The Peanuts, twin sisters, singers of King Records, had a show at Meitetsu 
Hall, Nagoya City on Dec. 1 and 2, after their one month performance tour in 
West Germany. Co-starring were the Three Funkies, Smily Ohara and others. J 
The Peanuts introduced German hits and Japanese favorite songs they sang on | 
their tour. I 

Peggy Hayama, songstress of King Records, is making her eighth recital at 
Sankei Hall, Tokyo, with the Four Coins, Ichiro Mikuni, Akimitsu Yoshitaka ) 
Quintet and Star Light Orchestra conducted by Kazuo Fukuda. , 

Nippon Victor released for the new year push Elvis Presley’s “Roustabout” ' i 
stereo LP from the soundtrack of the Paramount movie, including “One Truck 
Heart,” “Carnival Time,” and 10 other songs. Also, Victor’s January new is- > 
sues are “From Russia With Love,” “Viva Las Vegas,” “La Ragazza Di Bube” 
and 13 other songs in an LP titled “1964 Screen Hits.” <■ 

The Astronauts, who keenly caught our fans’ hearts with their “Hot Rod” 
last summer, are visiting Japan on Jan. 2 to perform, starting at Kosei-nenkin ^ 
Hall, Tokyo on Jan. 3, and in Osaka City and Yokohama City, before they 
leave on Jan. 11. The Ventures, Jannies, Blue Jeans are coming with them. 

Teichiku Records released for its year end push, “A Night In Montecalo” 
on Union and Brenda Lee’s Tango Collection on Decca. 

I. George did his stage show titled “George And Drums at Kosei-nenkin 
Hall Tokyo” on Dec. 8 with the bongo player Candide Camero from Cuba. It 
was promoted by I. M. Production. t • 

Nippon Crown held a celebration party for the moving of its Tokyo branch 
to the Shinwa Building, Tokyo, on Nov. 18. t,.

Cash Box — December 5, 1964 International Section 



CANADA 


Hal Ross, national field rep. at London, has inaugurated a 60 member, 
Canada wide youth advisory council, the London Records Youth Club. Mem- 
bers will represent three different age groups and serve as an indication 
to the label what trends exist and are developing on the record scene among 
Canada’s young people. In effect, the members of this club will serve as 
record critics for the label. Selected items from the new London releases 
will be sent to the club members, together with a questionaire based on the 
new product. London’s brass feels this unprecedented move, on a country wide 
basis, will enable them to keep in close touch with the all important young 
segment of the potential Canadian record market. Ronnie Fraser will do 
a Columbia session to wax two new sides for a single release in Montreal 
(12/8). He is currently making some noise regionally with a Columbia outing 
entitled, “Stop Look Listen.” The latter was a leased master by the label. 
The new session will be their own property from the outset. Add Jack Morse’s 
name to the growing list of American tradesters who are aware of the 
potential talent breakthrough shortly to occur in Canada. He’s the music 
director at WHEN, radio in Syracuse, N.Y., and a very interested observer 
of the Canadian wax scene. The Beatles are off to a flying start in all 
Canadian markets with their latest Capitol outing. “I Feel Fine” seems to 
be the bigger of the two sides with the country’s jocks and the record buyers 
as well. However, “She’s A Woman” will come in for a large slice of the 
action. Bruce Patenaude, music director at Montreal’s CJAD, also has high 
praise for Mark Thatcher’s U.A. outing, “Be My Love.” Mark is a Montrealer 
and this the best wax outing he has had to his credit over the course of a 
comparatively short but successful career. This now puts both Montreal pop 
outlets and good music formats on the Thatcher release. Could well be a 
national break out. Barry Paine indicates the single is being rushed to jocks 
across the country. Bruce also reports heavy air exposure on CJAD for the 
new album outing on DCP by Kathy Keegan. Phil Najovits expects to have 
one of the hottest albums in the history of Phonodisc with the release of 
the new set by The Supremes on Tamla (Motown), “A Bit Of Liverpool.” 
Jack Jones has a fine outing on the “Dear Heart” movie smash that will 
more than hold its own in the record sweepstakes shaping up with one re- 
lease right after another on the fine Mancini-Livingston-Evans, penned tune. 
The Kapp side was among the first to be released in Canada, with the Mancini 
version on Victor a close second. Mancini’s outing will very possibly develop 
into a two sider, as “How Soon” is coming in for heavy air exposure across 
Canada. Kai Winding has a good reading of the very pretty motion picture 
theme out on Verve, utilizing the Anita Kerr Singers for a vocal assist. Flip 
of the Winding version is a good instrumental reading of “Wolverton Moun- 
tain,” also coming in for considerable air play. A recent arrival from the 
British record and entertainment scene, Tim Hudson, has debuted as a 
regular air personality over Montreal’s (DKGM. He is an expert on the red 
hot British wax scene, having been closely associated with many of the 
leading artists there as a booker and associate of radio Caroline. He also 
has an interest in a British group calling themselves the Moody Blues. 

They are currently represented on a British Decca outing, “Go Now.” He 
will be featured on several of the station’s pop music shows. Another major 
format change aimed at beefing up the outlet’s Saturday night showing, has 
’GM air personality Bob Gillies teaming with Joan Fitzgerald in a two hour 
session of tunes and telephone calls intended for the teen age listeners and 
callers. This is followed by a three hour session of oldies but goodies with 
three of the outlets jocks in rotation. Copies of the latest giant on the 
English record scene, “Little Red Rooster” by The Rolling Stones have found 
their way into several Canadian markets prior to the official release in this 
country. The record made the top of the British Best Seller list in 
an unbelieveable forty-eight hour period following its release there, and seems 
certain to do the same big hit business when it is eventually released in North 
America. It’s the while-back Sam Cooke outing all set for a second time 
around thanks to the Stones. Jim Corbett and his Sparton folks seem set 
for a red hot Xmas season with no less than three big singles all happening. 
“Party Girl” by Tommy Roe, “Amen” by The Impressions, and “One More 
Time” by The Ray Charles Singers are all developing into monsters at 
Sparton, as sales soar daily. The Joe Popiel outing on quality is another first 
class example of Canadian talent, good enough to make anybody’s chart. “I 
Can’t Live Without You,” produced by Norman Petty could serve as a 
door opener to this talented Torontonian, Popiel. Whitey Haines sees big 
things happening for a pair of new things published through BMI Canada. 

“Tennessee Rocking Horse” is an instrumental novelty written by Oakville, 
Ontario resident, Ernie Varga, while the flip side of the new RIC outing, 
to be distributed in Canada by Quality, is a Johnny Cowell tune entitled “The 
Shag.” As a matter of fact this makes the second wax version of the Cowell 
tune to be released as a version of it appears on a new Danco release, Carl 
Schmidt’s American company, by Carl Danco and his orch. The Danco version 
is an instrumental. The pairing on RIC is by a group called The Stagehands, 
and Whitey looks upon that group to do well with the pairing in the Christmas 
market. A recent RIC outing by a Canadian group. The Winmen, “Nickel 
Piece Of Candy,” did very well in several key Canadian markets. Another 
Carl Schmidt outing on his Danco label in the U.S. is beginning to click in 
several U.S. centers. It’s the very commercial coupling by The Royal Jacks. 
“You’ll Never Be Mine” seems to be the top side and looks like a strong 
item regionally with enough action to develop into a national break-out in 
the U.S. Canadian distribution vdll follow shortly through Carl’s Canadian 
firm, Fonorama. Interested deejays can arrange for samples by contacting 
Carl at Fonorama, 258 Dijon, Pont Viau, Quebec. Still another Canadian 
content item that’ll do some business is a good blusie outing by Jay Smith 
and the Majesties. It’s on Clip records and is entitled “Driven From Home.” 
Check with Walt Grealis, 426 Merton Street, Toronto, on this one. It could 
be a real winner. Barry Paine has reserviced Canadian spinners with an 
Apex outing by Jay Bently entitled “Watusi ’64.” It looks like it could come 
right out of left field. It almost slipped through unnoticed except for strong 
sales at Montreal’s number one retail outlet, based on in store play alone. 
Radio exposure of the side in Montreal at that time was nil. Helmut Zacharias 
will have a big outing by all indications with his Decca waxing of “Tokyo 
Melody.” It’s already a giant in Great Britain and seems certain to follow 
through in similar fashion in North America if early air play and reaction 
is any indication. 

The tune was used as a theme for telecasts from the recent Olympics over 
BBC-TV in Britain, accounting for its popularity there. New and extremely 
interesting news sheet on the Canadian record scene is Cash-A-Gram, pro- 
duced and edited by A1 Mair, promo man at Apex Records in Toronto. Edition 
the first indicates that Toronto TV type, Ted Curl, has joined forces with 
Frank Slay to produce a “Shindig”-type TV’er for distribution in Canada 
and the U.S. according to Al’s news letter, Bobby Curtola is expected to 
be a regular. 




GERMANY 


“The Government in Germany should do more for the German composers.” 
Those are the words of GEMA general director Erich Schulze to the press 
in Munich. He said that foreign countries utilize every opportunity to advance 
the position of their artists, but unfortunately here in Germany this is not 
done in the same proportion. 

The report of GEMA for 1963 shows that although the income for German 
composers from foreign countries has risen from 900,000 marks ($225,000) 
in 1952 to 7.6 million marks ($1.9 million) in 1963, monies paid to foreign 
countries for compositions and publishers has risen from 3.5 million marks 
($875,000) in 1952 to 19.7 million marks ($4.9 million) in 1963. It’s impossible 
to overcome the promotion of foreign lands said Dr. Schulze. For instance, 
an example of how artistry in foreign lands is pushed is shown by the 5 
cent postage stamp from the U.S.A. with the motto “American Music” hon- 
oring the 50th anniversary of ASCAP, the U.S. sister firm in the U.S.A. 
for GEMA. Dr. Schulze thinks that the following things should be done for 
the living German composers in the future. First of all, the government here 
should set aside more funds for the promotion of German music in foreign 
countries, secondly, German orchestras with the help of the government 
should be sent on foreign tours and the orchestras that go should play more 
German music with at least one German standard or “evergreen” in their 
program, and thirdly the professional organization of the German composers 
should appeal to the government as they do in other countries for the promo- 
tion of German music in foreign countries. 

Star Club Records is off the ground. That’s the news from Philips this 
week. The teen oriented label featuring beat music was officially kicked off on 
Nov. 16. As we have already reported, the start program of the label ovraed 
by Manfred Weissleder of the Star Clubs in Germany and music publisher 
Hans Beierlein and distributed by Philips includes 8 singles and 6 LP’s with 
artists such as Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and 11 beat 
bands, most of which were discovered in the Star Club itself. There are now 
10 Star Clubs in Germany all with beat bands pushing out the latest sound 
for teenagers and the name Star Club is now over the whole country repre- 
sentative of high quality teenager music. Recently in England, a Star Club 
agency was opened to follow the example of Germany, because the new beat 
sound was founded not in Liverpool, but in Hamburg in the night club 
called the Star Club where the Beatles, The Searchers and many other groups 
got their start. The label should also prove a high expoi’t value for Beat 
band sounds from Germany. 

Gerd Hammerling of Nero Music reports that he’s swinging with the top 
tune from France “Ma Vie” from Alain Barriere and “Amore Scusami” 
which is shooting up the Cash Box Top 100 by Robert Goulet and is now out 
in German by the original Italian artist John Foster on Vogue. Gerd’s also

HOLLAND 


During the “Holland Festival” in July, 1964, the great Russian cellist 
Msstislav Rostropovitch gave the official premieres of two concerts for cello: 

1) a concert in C by Joseph Haydn, discovered in a German library in 1961 
and 2) the “Cello Symphony” Op. 68 by Benjamin Britten, dedicated to Ros- 
tropovitch. Hans Tecker, classical label-manager for Decca in Holland, in- 
formed Cash Box that the LP-recording of both works, with The English 
Chamber Orchestra conducted by Britten with Rostropovitch as the soloist, 
has been released now in the Netherlands. The LP is favored with a lot of 
extra publicity attention, and Cash Box was informed by leading Dutch rec- 
ord dealers that first sales were very promising. 

American country & western artist Bill Clifton, staying in England with 
his family for some time, visited Holland to discuss possibilities for a TV- 
show. Also in this country. Bill Clifton is considered among C&W fans as one 
of the most prominent young artists. His latest release: “The Code Of The 
Mountains,” on the London-label, was received with excellent reviews and 
intensive radio play. 

With Roy Orbison (“Pretty Woman”), Willeke Alberti (“Mijn Dagboek”) 
and The Rolling Stones (All Of Their Great 1964 Hits) in the lead. Phono- 
gram’s hit parade of Mid-November showed an interesting upward move of 
“The French Song” by Canadian Lucille Starr and “The Wedding” (La Novia) 
by 23-year-old English vocalist Julie Rogers. “Song” is on London-label, 
“Wedding” on Mercury in Holland. The great Roy Orbison-toppers, like “In 
Dreams,” “Leah” and his latest hit “Pretty Paper” are presented now by 
Phonogram in a special and very attractive single-series. 

Willy Brandt, mayor of West Berlin, has accepted the position of Honorary 
Member of the Royal Dutch Male Choir “The Mastreechter Staar.” The sug- 
gestion to appoint him as a Member of Honor dates from a special board- 
meeting on October 15th, 1964, based on the existing parallel between Brandt’s 
ideals and the Choir’s striving after dissolution of segregation between the 
various European countries, on the principle of conformative cultural points. 
The Mayor wrote: “The importance of the Royal Male Choir De Mastreechter 
Staar, artistically as well as their striving after friendship and mutual un- 
derstanding between the European nations, is well-known to me, and I am 
very pleased that I may call myself an Honorary Member of this society.” 

King of the Tango, Dutch composer and orchestra-leader Malando, left from 
his native country Holland for an extensive band-tour through Japan, on 
November 18th. The Malando Orchestra will stay in Japan for a period of 
four weeks, returning to Holland on December 15th. In Japan, 30,000 Malando 
LP’s a month are sold. The band will do eight performances a day, including 
color-TV and radio programs, in personal appearances of the Malando Or- 
chestra in the largest theatres of the country. The tour will undoubtedly re- 
sult in large publicity. The tour was organized in close cooperation between 
Philips’ Japan and Philips’ Phonographic Industries, Holland. 

A great hit on the Philips-label in Holland is a gay song dedicated to The 
1964 Judo world-champion, Anton Geesink. The singer is popular Willy Al- 
berti who has been active as a member of the Committee of Honor that or- 
ganized a splendid welcome for Geesink in Holland after his victory over 
Japanese champion Kaminaga. 

Phonogram presents a new single-series ($1.10) with famous popular clas- 
sics under the title “Immortal Melodies.” The first release consists of ten 
items, among them Grieg’s “Solvejg’s Song,” Ketelbey’s “In A Monastery Gar- 
den,” Suppe’s “Light Cavalry Overture,” Beethoven’s “Second Violin Ro- 
mance,” Leopold Mozart’s “Children’s Symphony,” and many more, all the 
best performances. Highly attractive is the presentation: covers with a color- 
ful and romantic approach, printed on a special brand of hard paper, with 
a candle-bracket as the central motive. 

Bovema’s oldest labels. His Master’s Voice and Columbia, launched their 
combined classical LP-series ‘Klassiek Palet’ this week. The repertory com- 
prises several high level performances by the greatest artists in unequaled 
full-color presentation. 

The company’s Imperial-label has a special season-offer to make in the re- 
ligious-music-vein: the “Christus Vincit”-EP-series, featuring The St. Charles 
Choir conducted by Paul Salamunovitch. 

Capitol’s head of the bill this week is Nat King Cole, whose “Love” single 
catches on very strong, thus setting the pace for Cole’s “My Fair Lady” 
rendition, due for LP-release very soon. Gramophonehouse-top songs in the 
air now are Adamo’s “Dolce Paola,” Imca Marina’s “Harlekino” (Also re- 
leased in German version). Cliff Richard’s “The Twelfth Of Never” and The 
Cocktail Trio’s “Hup, Hup, Hup” entered the Top Ten. 

Bovema’s president Mr. Gerry Oord flew to Brussels to present Adamo a 
platinum record covered with diamonds for unique top sales of “Vous Permet- 
tez Monsieur” in Benelux countries. The Ceremony took place in Brussels’ 
Press-house. 

Warner Bros, released its album “Traditional Jewish Memories” in Holland. 
The music is by Orchestra and Chorus of Benedikt Silberman, well known in 
this country for his regular broadcasts. Atlantic has new pop singles out 
by Solomon Burke, Otis Redding and Rufus Thomas. 

Bovema’s Imperial-chief Cees Mentink reports that Imca Marina’s new LP 
“Pour Leaf Clover” will be out soon. The singer entered the Top Ten with 
“Harlekino” in the meantime. 

Capitol-Holland reports that both albums “Funny Girl” (Barbra Streisand) 
and ’‘My Fair Lady” (Nat King Cole) are catching on very strong. The 
Bovema U.S. label this week releases Pete Seeger’s Folksong-LP and also has 
Buck Owens’ single “I Don’t Care” out as an introduction to this artist’s LP 
under the same title. 

The Gramophonehouse-studio this week inaugurated its unique Swiss 
Studer four-track tape recorder, which enables this company’s Dutch Produc- 
tion to mix orchestra with dubbed voices, chorus, etc. on one and the same 
tape, thus producing the highest mono- and stereo-quality. Bovema so far is 
the only record company in Holland to be equipped with this technical phe-.. 
nomenon. 

HMV’s folksong trio “The Shepherds,” now very much in vogue on Dutch 
radio and TV-programs -will do a TV-show on Holland’s channel 2 Saturday 
night. 

The premiere-date of the film “My Fair Lady” has been moved forward to 
December 17th. According to CBS’ Sales Manager Hemmy J. S. Wapperom, 
it will be a festive performance with a press-cocktail party in honor of the 
CBS soundtrack in conjunction with the movie. Around that time, CBS Gramo- 
foonplaten (in close cooperation with the Warner Bros, office in Amsterdam) 
shall launch a big press campaign with retailers in Amsterdam and Rotter- 
dam tieing-in with the event by means of window-displays, die-cuts, blow- 
ups, streamers, etc., supplied by CBS. 

Already Dutch TV stations are paying much attention to this widely-ac- 
claimed movie: VARA TV has shown some shots of this film (“behind the 
scene”) NCRV TV has planned to show a discussion about the picture, where- 
as AVRO TV shall present the Dutch viewers with a special about “My Fair

Lady” (about the film and the musical) on January 6th, 1965. On occasion 
of the “My Fair Lady” Month in Holland, CBS just released two more albums: 
Percy Faith’s “Music From My Fair Lady” and Andy Williams’ “The Great 
Songs From My Fair Lady And Other Broadway Hits.” 

CBS’ Sales Manager Hemmy J. S. Wapperom is very excited about Louis 
Van Dyke. The artist’s strong album, entitled “The Louis Van Dyke Trio/ 
Quartet” has just been released and already has established itself as a block- 
buster in this territory. The group consists of Louis Van Dyke (piano), 
Jacques Schols (bass), John Engels (drums) and Carl Schulze (vibes). In 
particular Louis Van Dyke graduated Cum Laude at the conservatory during 
the month this album was recorded! Also a newcomer on CBS Holland will 
be Julio B. Euson. Dutch TV-viewers will see him on December 16th next 
and his first single “My Plea” c/w “Baby Won’t You Come Back” is expected 
to become a real hit in this country. The Pico’s, Dutch accordian-players, re- 
cently have recorded a single with music from “My Fair Lady,” which shall 
be released on occasion of the “My Fair Lady” Month in Holland. 

Famous conductor Dr. George Szell, who was in Amsterdam to give a series 
of concerts with The Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, has written a 
message to the Dutch music-lovers, by special request of CBS Gramofoon- 
platen. This message, which was distributed among the Dutch Press, a.o. 
reads as follows : “I am complying very gladly with this request, because I am 
delighted at the prospect of spending again a few weeks in this country, with 
which I have been in love ever since I came here for the first time thirty-five 
years ago. I am looking forward to renewing any contacts with the audiences 
of what might be called one of the most music-minded countries on the face 
of this earth.” Signed George Szell. 

Artone officially launched an initial series of their local classical production 
during a crowded reception given at the International Cultural Centre of 
Amsterdam, thereby crowning the diskery’s 8-year development into the major 
independent recording industry in the Benelux. The importance of the affair 
ostentatiously was demonstrated by an overwhelming attendance on the part 
of Radio, Television and Press, key-dealers operating in the field as well as 
of the leading classical artists presented on the Artone label. Party, one of 
the livliest social affairs ever organized by the company, was opened by 
Artone’s Mr. Ariens Kappers who focused attention on 12 Long Play albums 
and several Extended Play and Single Records, presenting the internationally 
renowned creative talent of the following artists: Daniele Dechenne (pianist), 
Gerard Hengeveld (pianist), Hans Henkemans (pianist). Dr. Anthon v.d. 
Horst (organist), Albert de Klerk (organist), Herman Krebbers (violinist), 
George van Renesse (pianist), conductor Andre Rieu, Janny van Wering 
(harpsichord), and first-rate ensembles: The Dutch String Quartet (Neder- 
lands Strijkkwartet), the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra and the Danzi Quin- 
tet all under exclusive Artone pact since 1963. Programme, produced by 
leading A&R man loop L. U. Reiziger, includes many rarely recorded works 
by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, J. S. Bach, C. P. E. Bach, Pachelbel, Walther, 
Bruhns, Buxtehude, Valentini, Danzi, Gebauer, Locatelli, Albinoni, Pergolesi 
and Don Lorenzo Perosi.

Following the programs of international attractions at Teatro Record, the 
Emissoras Unidas (Radio and TV-Record, Channel 7) is now_ presenting two 
of strong representative artists of Spanish music: Carmen Sevilla, singing and 
dancing movie-star, and her husband-composer. Maestro Augusto Alguero. The 
charming and talented young couple’s Latin American tour included personal 
appearances in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro and now Sao Paulo. 
From here they will go to Lima, Peru, and then rush to Madrid to attend the 
annual TV gala show of Philips, for which Cai’men is recording for quite a 
while. No need to say how enormously successful they have been in Spanish 
speaking countries of South America, where both are famous and well-known, 
through Cai’men’s films and Augusto’s hit compositions; but also in Brazil the 
public reacted very well to the lively and fascinating rhythm and style of the 
Spanish “flamenco” music, which has in Carmen Sevilla one of the best inter- 
preters. The beautiful lark’s near future plans include a trip to the US, where 
she will be guest star at Ed Sullivan’s Show on January 10. She will also come 
back to this country, where she was invited to star in a film in co-production 
between Brazil and Spain, in which she will sing also in Portuguese. The very 
attractive star is a definite fan of the Modern Brazilian Music and places Joao 
Gilberto on top of her favorites. Alguero, as a composer should, is more in 
favor of Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom). But Augusto Alguero is also busy in the 
international waxing field: recently he was in Paris, France, where Connie 
Francis cut an EP with four of his compositions in Spanish, among which the 
number that is becoming an international hit — “Gracias.” His latest waxing 
was for CBS, another EP with Enrique Guzman singing four of his numbers. 
We wish the best of lucks to the pleasant and good-looking couple in their 
first US experience. 

There was another cocktail-party hosted by Discos RGE, for the official 
launching of an excellent LP cut by the Corol Willys, a very good choral group 
of “Willys Overland do Brasil.” The usual RGE hospitality was in good hands: 
prexy Jose Scatena, his efficient assistant Aurora Padula, as well as inter- 
national supervisor Marcos Nobili and the promo man Getulio Alves. All 
arrangements in the waxing were made by Maestro Rafael Puglielli, with 
direction of Maestro Zuinglio Faustini and supervision of Maestro Ruben Perez 
(Pocho). From this LP, RGE is selecting four traditional Christmas numbers 
for a “double-compact” to be released for the coming season. At the pleasant 
and lively cocktail-bash, we could see, besides all the staff of the company, the 
most important radio, television and press representatives, like Julio Rozem- 
berg (Tupi), Bob Corte-Real (Emissoras Unidas) and others, several artists — 
Lygia Freitas Vale — and people connected with Willys, like John Garner and 
wife (he is the publicity manager of the company) and Edson Borges (Pas- 
sarinho) of Norton Publicity Agency, and many many others. 

Still from RGE, Marcos Nobili sends latest news, as PR and Press contact: 
a single-compact (33RPM-7") is being released with two interesting titles — 
“La Cucaracha,” where the traditional number gets a new “surf” treatment, 
and “Anjinho Da Gang,” which is a musical description of a car accident with 
motor noises and tire screech and all. The Beverlys, one of first teen-rhythm 
vocal groups to appear. Another interesting single is being released featuring 
the great guitarist Paulinho Nogueira, who this time plays two numbers by 
other composers: “Zelao” by Carlos Lyra and Vinicius de Morals, and “Onde 
Esta Voce” by Oscar Castro Neves and Fiorin . The first number recorded 
“live” on a recent show at Teatro Paramount. To celebrate the town of Porto 
Alegre, RGE is releasing a double-compact titled “Ferias Em Porto Alegre,” 
with compositions by “gaucho” Alberto Do Canto, as sung by Marcos Miranda, 
who recently acted on the Brazilian version of “My Fair Lady,” next to Bibi 
Ferreira. After the terrific success of the LP “O Fino Da Bossa,” still on the 
first spot on the charts, RGE is preparing another in the same conditions, cut 
during the “Show De Bossa” at the theater of the “Rotary Club,” with young 
artists of modern Brazilian pop music. A few flashes from the Bossa move- 
ment: Oscar Castro Neves working on the arrangements for his next LP; 
Wanda, the attractive blond songstress preparing her trip to the States in order 
to make a good promotion of the new wave — in her luggage, her latest LP for 
RGE and the tape of the same; Ana Lucia still in Rio, with great success due 
to her latest LP “Ana Lucia Canta Triste”; Paulinho Nogueira is very happy 
with the sincere applause granted to him in all shows he has participated in; 
a new group — “Os 6 Em Ponto” — is anxious for the release of their recently 
cut waxing, optimistic about the results; the two LP’s by the label “Zimbo 
Trio” and “0 Fino Da Bossa,” steady on the first spots, prove how the com- 
pany has an eye for MPM releases. 

Sue C. Clark informs about what is going on with Companhia Brasileira De 
Discos (Philips) : the new general manager of the company, Alain Trossat, was 
most recently the manager of Philips Records in Chile, and has also worked 
with both the French and Dutch organizations in Europe. With the knowledge 
of the increasing importance of recorded concerts by important artists, CBD 
now presents “E Tempo De Miisica Popular Moderna,” which includes the 
label’s major artists. This concern at the “0 Globo” newspaper auditorium was 
sponsored for aiding the campaign of “Help A Child To Study.” The LP in- 
cludes a rousing opener by the Copa Trio of “My Weakness Is Strong Coffee”; 
followed by Luis Henriques’ new version of “Amor 6x8.” One of the most 
applauded attractions at this concert was Os Cariocas, whose tender reading 
of the beautiful lyric to “Minha Mamarada” brought an ovation. This song is 
one of the standouts from Vinicius De Morais and Carlos Lyra’s recent musical 
in Rio, entitled “Pobre Menina Rica” (Poor Little Rich Girl). The first half of 
the program terminated with Rosana Toledo’s fine version of “Hoje E Dia De 
Amor.” The high point of the concert was reached with the appearance of 
Jorge Ben, singing his newest hit “Descalgo No Parque” (Barefoot In The 
Park”), and a spirited concert performance of his last hit, “Bicho Do Mato.” 
This is a great crowd-pleaser and the audience loves to sing along the refrain of 
“Oi, Oi, Oi!” with Jorge! The concert closed with always popular Tamba Trio, 
and was, of course, very well-received — particularly their new version of 
“Enquanto A Tristeza Nao Vem.” This disk is a collector’s must! Also included 
in CBD’s December releases is the album called “Reino Da Garotada,” whose 
boys chorus sings an outstanding selection of international songs. The most 
notable are the Brazilian “Mulher Rendeira” from the movie, “O Cangaceiro,” 
from Italy comes “Tiritomba” and “Arrivederci Roma” — this time with Portu- 
guese lyrics! Also included are “Hava Nagila,” “Dominique” and “Ensinado 
Bossa Nova,” a Portuguese version of Eyde Gorme’s “Blame It On The Bossa 
Nova.” In leaving to make a tour in the US, Jorge Ben left behind a small 
“present” for his fans: his third LP called “Ben E Samba Bom,” with some of 
his greatest current successes. 

The latest releases of the company also include two records celebrating not 
only Carnival but Rio’s 400th Anniversary — “Camaval! Carnaval! Carnaval 
65!” and “0 Grande Carnaval de 65” with numbers sung by the many stars of 
the label, sure to have great sales success. The company has also reasons to be 
proud of the DGG release of Johannes Brahms “Concerto For Violin, Cello and 
Orchestra”; the world famous “Double Concerto” is performed by Wolfgang 
Schneiderhan, violin, Janos Starkar, cello, and the Berlin Symphony Orchestra 
was conducted by the late Maestro Ferenc Fricsay.

The most important news of the promotion of the Modern Brazilian Popular 
Music — the so-called Bossa Nova — is no doubt the invitation extended to our 
great composer, arranger Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim, to follow the favorites 
of Frank Sinatra — Axel Stordahl and Nelson Riddle — making the arrangements 
and conducting the orchestra for the next waxing for Reprise. This is the 
beginning of a new era for the BNN.

Just Like Old Times 


SAO PAULO — Luis De M. C. Guedes (right), Cash Box’s man in Brazil, 
recently went backstage at a local Sao Paulo theatre and -visited his old friends 
Augusto Alguero and wife Carmen Sevilla, the well-known Spanish lark. The 
threesome discussed old times in Madrid.

Cash Box — December 5, 1964 international Section 



ARGENTINA 



Mauricio Brenner, Fermata’s topper, is back from his tour of Europe, where 
he got in touch with publishing firms in Spain and Italy, and met Enrique 
Lebendiger, who’s also traveling around the world. The two Fermata men dis- 
cussed further action of their organization, both in the international and local 
scenes. Brenner traveled with Juan Ramon, the young singer, who promoted 
his recordings and picked up several new tunes for waxing. 

Ricardo Castelblanco of Edami is busy working on “ “Cataclismo,” a Mexican 
tune of big success in that country, where it was cut by Maria Elena Sandoval 
for Orfeon. In Argentina, CBS has released the Cuarteto Imperial version, and 
several others are due. On the export side, Castelblanco notes interest on “Que 
Falta Que Me Haces,” the Calo-Pontier-Silva tango that broke into the charts 
recently. “Inolvidable,” the Tito Rodriguez best seller, is also gaining action 
in other markets. 

News from Neumann: “Quedemos Como Amigos” and “Suelta la Cintura” 
are two of the new titles to be promoted by Tito Rodriguez, and the record 
will be soon available. The themes are controlled by US publisher Hall of 
Fame, represented here by Di Liscia’s company. Nestor Fabian has cut for 
Odeon “Misty,” the American standard, in tango rhythm. The waxing is 
expected to follow the success of “Charade” by the same artist. 

Odeon recently played host to the press and deejays, presenting several 
new artists that have joined the label recently: Claudia, Vicky Rey and Tab- 
lita Yanez. Los Pafiamenos, Danielo and Chicote Lopez were also present, and 
all the guests received samples of the latest recordings by these artists. Em- 
cee of the party — one of the liveliest of the season — was well known Juanito 
Belmonte, now working for the diskery as public relations man. 

Otto Fey of Fenix busy at work with the first recordings by Walter San 
Juan, just inked by this label. His first single is “Mensaje” and “Queja de 
Amor,” and will be soon preparing an album. Also on desk is Oscar Lavie with 
“Charade” and “Llevate Mi Corazon.” Fey plans a big promotional push for 
several Fenix recordings during the following weeks. 

Adolfo Pino of RCA, back from a tour of several provinces, has several 
strong items to report about: The second album of “Festival of Italian Music,” 
with tunes by Rita Pavone, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka, Gino Paoli and several 
other top stars; a new album by Lalo Fransen, with the chanter’s latest wax- 
ings, and the famous “Maria Elena” album by Los Indios Tabajaras. In the 
singles field, there is a new one by Los Chalchaleros (“Cueca de la Vina 
Nueva”) and another one by Chico Miranda: “La Chiva” b/w “La Mokini.” 

CBS is cashing in on the success of folk singer Jorge Cafrune in the second 
edition of the Odol Song Festival, aired by TV Channel 13 and a national radio 
network. The news coming from New York and reporting the success of 
melodic singer Roberto Yanes have been echoed by several local newspapers 
and magazines, resulting in an improvement in the chanter’s prestige in town. 
On the teen side, young Miguelito Miguel has started a series of appearances 
on Channel 13, in the Escala Musical program, with success. 

Phonogram is releasing the third volume of the “Picapied'ras” series, re- 
corded by Los Portoqriquenos, Los Claudios and la Sonora Kalingo. As usual, 
the album contains a flock of chart riders: “Cumbia Sobre El Mar,” “Vestida 
de Novia,” “Inolvidable,” “Collar de Caracolas” and others. There is also an 
album by well known tango orkster Armando Pontier, on mono and stereo, 
and other LP by Gasparin and his group, also covering the best sellers lists. 
On the EP side, there are new decks by Millie Small, Los Eronterizos, Luis 
Alberto del Parana and Los Paraguayos and Peruvian songstress Fetiche. 

Music Hall has plenty of faith in Horacio Ascheri, the former member of 
The Pick Ups, now singing as soloist. Ascheri’s waxings have been received 
very well (the latest is “Otra Vez,” backed by “No Puede Ser”) and now he 
has been inked by Channel 9 for one of its main programs. Folk singer Rodolfo 
Zapata has been visiting the provinces of Santa Fe, Cordoba and La Pampa, 
and is currently appearing on Radio El Mundo, in Buenos Aires. He’s prepar- 
ing a new album, which will include his hit, “Alegria de Vivir.” 

Julio Korn Publishers has prepared the Spanish lyrics for instrumental hit 
“Sometimes On Friday,” which hit the charts some time ago. Also under 
promotion is “Me Conformo,” written by Spanish composer Alguero and sub- 
published in this country by Korn. Also worth mentioning is the recording 
made by Violeta Rivas of the Brazilian tune “Sonar Contigo” for RCA. 

News from Lagos Publishers: strong promotion for “Vidala del Chango,” 
penned by Ramon Novarro. There are several recordings of interest, and main- 
ly one by Los Trovadores del Norte. This tune has been also adopted by school 
choirs, which will mean additional exposure for long time. Los Trovadores del 
Norte (CBS) have also cut “Los Bichos,” which is considered a potential hit, 
too. 

Melograf Publishers is publishing “Mis Tormentos,” written by teen singer 
Larry, “Hortensia,” permed by Alvarez and Coco Barcala’s “Por la Madruga.” 
There is also a paper version of “Esto,” Leo Dan’s hit, for accordion players, 
which is expected to meet a strong market in several provinces. 

Several newies from Microfon: Los Cinco del Ritmo are in the market with 
“Vuelven los Pescadores,” penned after the success of their single, “Los Pes- 
cadores.” Under the Coral banner there is an album by Dick Jacobs, “The 
Electrosonic Orchestra”; finishing the list are two Audio Fidelity outings: 
“Overture!” by Arthur Winograd and “Strauss Waltzes” by Emanuel Vardi 
and the Virtuoso Symphony of London. 

Big news from Disc Jockey: Rosamel Araya, after the fantastic sales of his 
latest album, has cut Gianni Morandi’s smash “In Ginocchio De Te.” Pepito 
Perez’ first LP, a ten inch promotional album, is ready for release; Perez’ latest 
single is “La Calle,” which is also expected to break into the charts. Jorge 
Sobral is finishing a new album with tango music, which will be released this 
month; the same will happen with Ricardo Rey’s single, “Tu Pafiuelo.”

The Passe Partout publishing company, which during the last year scored 
with many hits on the Flemish lists with Flemish songster Johnny Larry told 
Cash Box that Larry’s Number One “Alleen” (on the bestselling list for many 
weeks) is now to be issued by Polydor in Germany. This same firm has brought 
the original version by Larry on the Belgian market. The sub-editor for Ger- 
many is Gerig. Larry stands a good chance in the Federal Republic with this 
record, and it may very well provide his breakthrough over there. This publish- 
ing company also has high hopes for “Jabadabadoe” by Roger Rogier. Johnny 
Hoes owns rights on this number in Holland. 

Show records is now distributing hits of Italian lady crooner Mina in Bel- 
gium. Tony Geys, who was involved in a traffic-accident, is now recovering in 
the Limbourg province. His latest disk “Limburg Allein” is selling well. Alber- 
to Cortez has just come out with a single which features promising tunes, es- 
pecially the one called “Dame Felicidad.” On the reverse a catchy tune: “Fanny.” 
Also on Show a Spaniard living in Antwerp, named Juan de Aisa has recorded 
two attractive numbers on a single. Titles: “La Sirena” and “Desoreciable.” 

Peter Plum is at present very busy with the launching of a Finnish dance, 
called the Jenka. Plum has acquired publishing rights on the number “Letkis,” 
in fact the booster to the new dance. Attractive Finn, Miriam Michelson, came 
over to Brussels to demonstrate the new steps in the course of a Polish night. 
Plum, who is artistic managing director at Barclay’s has recorded the first 
Jenka-record, titled “Letkis” — naturally. The Letkis number was originally 
published by RCA in Finland, but Belgium will get the Barclay version. Jenka 
is being boosted by the Belgian press, radio and television and is probably on 
its way to a succes.sful career. The advantages of the Jenka are that it can be 
done by people of all ages and social groups. 

Talking about Barclay, we would like to add that it has come out with EP’s 
featuring classical piano music by Bernard Ringeissen. The newest Brell and 
Aznavour LP’s have been well received. Aznavour will be at the Ancienne 
Belgique in Brussels in Dec. Gerard Melet is at present billed there. 

The same goes for Gramophone attraction Enrico Macias. Macias has won 
fame over here with “La femme de mon ami,” and different signs point toward 
“hits ahead.” Adamo has been offered a record with eighteen diamonds incor- 
porated. He also won “The Prize of Smile.” 

Roger Meylemanas, director of Vogue-Belgium is really stunned by the 
latest Henri Salvador hit called “Ma Pipe.” After Salvador had reached the 
top, both in Flanders and in the Walloon country with “Zorro est Arrive,” 
one would have thought that nothing else could have topped it. Then “Ma 
Pipe” came along and is apparently on its way to beat “Zorro est Arrive.” 
Vogue also got a British Number One: “Sandie Shaw with “There’s Always 
Something There To Remind Me” and a great deal of good is expected of the 
Shangri Las’ “Leader Of The Pack” on Red Bird, distributed by the above 
mentioned fiian over here. The Honeycombs and The Kinks are doing well over 
here. 


Philips has a potential Flemish topper with the newest record by popular 
Flemish lady crooner Lize Marke. Lize recorded the Flemish version of Jacques 
Debout’s “Nos doigts se sont croises”; Flemish title: “Ji j danst te dicht bi j 
mi j.” Claude Francois has taken care of the French version of “Bread and 
Butter,” now on the market as “Du pain et du beurre.” This popular French- 
man has also produced a French rendering of “When You Walk In The Room”, 
now called “Les cloches sonnaient.” The firm also expects a great deal of 
“Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes” by Robert Cogoi. On the reverse 
is featured “Le chemin qu’il faut suivre.” Let’s hope this new disk will bring 
Robert into the limelight once more. 

Marvin Gaye, a Motown-attraction who is not well known over here, has 
spent a few days in Belgium for promotion purposes. He has been interviewed 
by journalists and radio reporters which may enhance his record sales. “Pride 
and Joy” has been his best in the United States, but he hasn’t made it yet over 


here. We wish Marvin all the best.

COIN MACHINES 
& VENDING 


Gash Bcnc 


Editorial 


This Sophisticated Business 
Of Operating Coin Machines 


On the surface, the coin machine operator clad in 
work clothes while changing records, replenishing mer- 
chandise, and servicing his equipment, may come across 
as a hard-nosed laborer of sorts whose interests go no ^ 
further than the immediate task at hand. An under- 
current of complex business techniques necessary for ^ 
profit, however, have forced him to be as sophisticated 
in the conduct of his business as the Wall Street finan- 
cier. 

Time was when the business required little more than 
periodic service and collection on the route, and there 
are operators who continue to run a route in this manner. 

But with costs and taxes rising constantly, this type will ^ 
be by the boards before long if he does not realize what ' 
is happening to the small businessman of today, and that 
most certainly means the operator of the smallest route 
in town. > 

Last week, one hundred operators with routes in the 
metropolitan and upstate New York area, heard attor- ’ 
neys and accountants talk about write-offs, installation , 
and security agreements, and court rulings on firms the ^ 
size of the Cleveland Browns. r 


These professional advisors were not merely expound- ^ 
ing to impress the listeners. They were talking about >* 
specific situations in the business of operating equip- 
ment which are as concrete as the machines they con- 
cern. Recent tax court rulings have indicated that write- 
offs, the good will of a business, once amortized over the 
life of a contract period, will now be considered as mass 
assets and unless the Treasury Department can be made . 
to understand economics of the purchase and sale of a 
route, serious problems will come about from such a 
position. ' 

Installation and security agreement is not a fancy name ^ 
for the location contract. Actually it outdates most 
simple location contracts, which for the most part have ^ 
been weakened due to the omission of such vital clauses 
as those pertaining to chattel mortgages, loans and 
bonuses, and purchaser’s assumption of obligations ^ 
which is of no value when the purchaser happens to be 
broke. Better the present owner remain liable for the ^ 
duration of the contract than for the operator to go from 
the frying pan into the fire. 

As for rnlings concerning the Cleveland Browns foot- 
ball team, the court in which this ruling took place was 
far from the fifty yard line which would be more familiar 
to the operator. The fact that contracts with Browns ^ 
players were proven to have a determinable life may be 
the grounds by which the cost of these contracts may be 
written off in a four and one-half year write-off period. ^ 
The cost of a juke box or cigarette vending machine con- 
tract should enjoy these same tax benefits. It will be up 
to the industry, and the operators in it, to see that this is 
the case. 

The operator need not become a specialist in law or ^ 
tax accounting but he had better be aware of the way in 
which his investment can be protected, and his profits s. 
remain free from inequitable tax rulings. In order to win ^ 
in the courts and with the IRS, today’s operator had 
better keep abreast of these sophisticated business tech- 
niques, or it won’t make much difference how much 
money there is in the cash box.

ST. JOSEPH VALLEY OPS 
HOLD ANNUAL BANQUET 



FRANK FABIANO 

Pres. Sf. Joseph's Valley Op. Assoc. 


CHICAGO — Fred Granger, managing 
director of Music Operators of Amer- 
ica (MOA), referred to his organi- 
zation last week as an “umbrella” 
under which all facets of the coin 
machine industry must gather for 
positive action and unification. Gran- 
ger was the guest speaker, Novem- 
ber 18, at the annual banquet of 
the Music and Vending Machine oper- 
ators of St. Joseph Valley (Michigan 
and Indiana), at Irvin’s Dining Rooms, 
in South Bend, Indiana. 

He added, in his brief address to 
the assemblage, that all future in- 
dustry-wide conventions are depend- 
ent upon the “closest cooperation and 
support of these varied facets.” They 
include: Operators (the consumer 
backbone), phonograph manufactur- 
ers, amusement game manufacturers, 
distributors and jobbers, record com- 
panies, one stops, allied industries, 
state and local associations and the 
nation’s deejays. 

“Because of the success of our 
1964 annual convention, October 14-16, 
in the Sherman House, we can prac- 
tically express the assurance that 
MOA’s 1965 convention will be even 
greater in overall scope and attend- 
ance,” Granger concluded. 

The ’65 conclave has already been 
scheduled by the MOA brass to be 
held September 11-13 in the Pick 
Congress Hotel in this city. 

The St. Joseph Valley operators’ 
banquet enjoyed its heaviest attend- 
ance ever, according to Frank Fabi- 
ano, president. Other officers on the 
dais with Fabiano and Granger were: 
A1 Evans, Joe MacQuivey and Vern 
Daly. 

The evening’s festivities started 
with a cocktail party, and was fol- 
lowed by dinner, dancing, and then 
a fioor show. Entertainment was sup- 
plied by Bud Moore, of Valli Records. 


NEW YORK — The Music Operators 
of New York, Inc. met Thursday at 
the Holiday Inn here (Nov. 24) and 
before the audience of 100 coinmen 
and guests left for home at mid- 
night, they were already thinking 
seriously about tax write-offs, depre- 
ciation, good will, chattel mortgages, 
contracts and a host of other pro- 
fessional terms used to identify the 
means by which an operator in to- 
day’s market must do business. Al- 
bert Denver, President of MONY, ac- 
knowledges that an understanding of 
modern business practices is neces- 
sary hence, the presence on the dais 
last Tuesday evening, of professional 
lawyers and accountants, qualified to 
instruct and inform the coin machine 
operator. For many operators, it was 
probably the most profitable evening 
they have spent in many a moon. 

The highlight of the dinner-meet- 
ing was Denver’s announcement that 
the new MONY Location Contract, a 
new Installation and Security Agree- 
ment, to be used by members in 
place of previous contracts used, is 
now available for members only. The 
contract represents the culmination of 
several months of work and is the 
final form following more than one 
dozen drafts. Denver, Teddy Blatt, 
MONY Attorney and Association offi- 
cials authored the contract. 

In addition to the standard con- 
tract clauses and agreements, the 
MONY contract takes into considera- 
tion other possibilities which may re- 
sult in an operator being faced with 
a multitude of problems between the 
location and his operating firm. 'The 
contract bans the installation of the 
audio-visual type machine, currently 
being marketed by Cinebox, Scopi- 
tone. Cinematic and others; the 
agreement takes into consideration 
past, present and future loans and 
bonuses; recognizes the newly written 
Uniform Commercial Code as it per- 
tains to Bulk Sales Provisions con- 
cerning the sale of a location; per- 
mits filing of a chattel mortgage 
agreement with the Secretary of 
State and the County Clerk in the 
County in which the lessee’s business 
is located. Previously, the location 
owner, in a transfer, had the new 
owner assume contract responsibili- 
ties, but now the new contract holds 
the present owner liable for the dura- 
tion of the contract (this clause was 


Denver Re-Elected 
Pres. Of MONY 


■ 22nd Term In Office 



AL DENVER 
President, MONY 


NEW YORK — A1 Denver was re- 
elected President of the Music Oper- 
ators of New York, Inc., at an elec- 
tion meeting held here on Tuesday, 
November 24, in the Holiday Inn 
Motor Hotel. It will be the veteran 
industry executive’s 22nd consecutive 
term in office. 

Also re-elected were the following 
MONY officers: George Holtzman, 
Vice President; Gil Sonin, Treasurer; 
Bill Kobler, Secretary. 

Following are the coinmen who 
will serve on the MONY Board dur- 
ing 1965; Donald Shapiro, Leonard 
Block, Harry Siskind, David Sachs, 
William Goetz, Albert Arnold and 
Irving Fenischal.

brought about when location owners 
sold to people who were unqualified 
to assume any debt). Where the lo- 
cation, in the past, has challenged 
the validity of the former contract 
used, the operator now has a waiver 
of jury trial on any question con- 
cerning the contract. The operator’s 
name appears on each of his con- 
tracts. This is a measure to prevent 
non-members from taking advantage 
of a legal instrument which has cost 
MONY large sums of money in the 
development. “It just wouldn’t be fair 
for non-members to have access to 
our contract,” said Denver. 

Attorney Teddy Blatt briefly ex- 
plained the current status of the 
pending Consent Decree and advised 
operators that while an appeal was 
lost, it is being appealed now in the 
Supreme Court. 

Ben Haskell, of the Haskell & 
Blatt legal firm, attorneys for MONY, 
addressed the operator group and 
discussed the Uniform Commercial 
Code. He stated that the transfer 
of a business may be duly regarded 
as pertinent to the UCC ruling, which 
states that all creditors be advised 
of the sale beforehand. Since many 
coin machine locations are restau- 
rants, coffee shops and malt shops, 
and may be classified as service or- 
ganizations, they may not be included 
in UCC ruling. He added that it was 
his opinion that the operator would 
benefit from the revised UCC how- 
ever, believing that this type loca- 
tion would be classified as a business 
subject to UCC rulings. Rulings in 
New Jersey have not been favorable, 
he stated, and NYC may follow. “I 
expect that you will be covered, how- 
ever,” said Haskell. In any event, the 
MONY contract, which contains a 
chattel mortgage agreement filed 
with State and County officials, 
would enable the operator to protect 
his interests. 


Mortimer L. Merkel, of Abrams, 
Meresman & Co., Certified Public Ac- 
countants, spoke on provisions of the 
new tax law which regards purchase 
of route of machines as Mass Assets 
wherein the purchase of several con- 
tracts is treated as the acquisition 
of a single asset which is not ex- 
hausted by the passage of time. The 
Tax Court has ruled thusly in several 
instances outlined by Merkel and the 
outcome is that the value of good 
will may not be fully amortized over 
the life of a contract. He stated that 
only a tax court decision could 
change the Treasury Department’s 
view on location contracts and sug- 
gested that the industry raise funds 
for a test case in order that informa- 
tion in relation to the actual life of 
contracts, the key point in the Tax 
Court’s ruling, be accumulated on an 
industry wide basis. (Complete text of 
Mr. Merkel’s talk appears elsewhere 
in this issue.) 

On other subjects, Denver advised 
operators that a State Liquor Author- 
ity ruling demands that licensees re- 
port all loans or bonuses “from 
interested parties,” of sums up to 
$1000. He also mentioned that an- 
other MONY service. Operators 
Credit Exchange, is currently supply- 
ing member operators with informa- 
tion on credit where locations have 
faltered with other member ops. 

Among the prominent coinmen 
present were Mrs. Millie McCarthy, 
Pres., NYSCMA; Carl Pavesi, Pres. 
Westchester Operators Guild; Mike 
Mulqueen, Pres. NYS Operators 
Guild; Jack Wilson, Chairman, NYS 
Operators Guild; Lou Werner, up- 
state Association attorney; Malcom 
Wein, Westchester Association attor- 
ney; Albert (Senator) Bodkin, rep- 
resentative of the Cardinal Spellman 
Servicemen’s Club, who addressed ops 
and asked for donations for this 
year’s Servicemen’s Club drive. The 
program is a coin-machine philan- 
thropic program. Members of the 
trade press were in attendance. Reps 
from Runyon Sales, Atlantic New 
York Corp., Musical Distributors 
Corp., and Lipsky Distributing, were 
also present. 

Nominations for officers of MONY 
were made. Since each post received 
but one nominee, Denver asked the 
Secretary to cast one ballot for the 
election. Albert Denver was re-elected 
President; George Holtzman was re- 
elected VP; Gil Sonin re-elected 
Treas; and Bill Kobler was re-elected 
Sec. Directors are Lenny Block, 
Harry Siskind, Dave Sachs, Bill 
Goetz, Donald Shapiro, A1 Arnold, 
and Irv Fenishal. 

New MONY members who sub- 
mitted membership applications since 
the last meeting were: Old Reliable 
Music Co. (Joe Madden); A. Weis- 
berg Service Co. (Abe Weisberg); 
Matthews Service Co.; Rayben Music 
Co. All were accepted by an MONY 
vote. 

Business Manager Ben Chicofsky 
was reported convalescing after sur- 
gery. His wife Molly assisted MONY 
secretary Sophie Selinger with steno- 
graphic and administrative prepara- 
tions.

An Accountant Discusses Write-Offs On Route Sales 


Mortimer L. Merkel, CPA, is asso- 
ciated with the accounting firm of 
Abrams, Meresman & Company, con- 
sultants to business firms which in- 
clude vending machine operating com- 
panies in New York City. Merkel was 
asked by President Albert Denver, to 
address the Music Operators of Neiv 
York, at a meeting on Thursday , 
November 2Ji., at the Holiday Inn in 
NYC. His remarks are considered to 
be pertinent to the business of oper- 
ating equipment in today’s markets, 
hence, the decision of the editors to 
reprint the full text of Merkel’s talk, 
which appears beloiv. 


I have been asked to discuss with 
you a problem affecting your Industry 
in relation to the write-off of the 
amounts paid for routes in excess of 
the market value of the equipment. 
This matter has come up with our 
clients operating cigarette routes but 
it would appear that this is also a 
major problem for operators of music 
routes. 

You do not always purchase a busi- 
ness when you acquire a route. You 
usually purchase several or many 
machines on location to add to a route 
already in existence. 

In determining the price to be paid 
for the locations or route, several 
factors are taken in consideration 
each having a different tax impact. 

1. the potential income 

2. equipment and machines, their 
age and condition 

3. the length and time the location 
contracts are to run and the prob- 
ability of renewal 

4. covenant not to compete 

In addition you may also acquire 

5. trucks 

6. inventory 

The above factors except for trucks 
and inventory although considered in- 
dividually in making up the price of 
the location, for contract purposes, 
are thrown into a pot like so many 
ingredients, the ultimate mixture is 
the dollar value placed on and paid 
for the location. Thus in computing 
the price you take into consideration 
so much per case for average weekly 
sales of cigarettes which includes the 
machine and so many times the week- 
ly take of the music machines plus 
the market value of the equipment. 
The contract of purchase and sale 
treat such locations in the aggregate 
as a route. The details of the loca- 
tions are usually appended to the 
main contract. 

As a result of such treatment, the 
Tax Court has introduced a concept, 
new to the vending machine industry, 
into the tax law, namely “Mass 
Assets,” the impact of which is that 
the acquisition of several contracts 
should be treated as the acquisition 
of a single asset which is not ex- 
hausted by the passage of time; that 
for so many locations lost so many 
new ones may be acquired. A con- 
tinuity of the entity which does not 
lend itself to amortization deduction. 

There are two important cases: 

Thrifticheck Service Corp. 33 TC 
117 decided March 22, 1960 

In this case the taxpayer acquired 
the assets of a going business in- 
cluding its customer structure repre- 
sented by 200 contracts with cus- 
tomers. The nature of the business 
was selling and installing in banks 
throughout the United States a check- 
ing account system known as “Thrifti- 
check Service Plan.” The court in 
denying the amortization deductions 
for the contracts held that the tax- 
payer did not buy individual con- 
tracts but rather a single asset con- 
sisting of an aggregate of contracts. 
That this asset did not have a limited 
useful life. 

Sam Scalish et al TC Memo 1962-16 
decided March 6, 1962 

The issue involved in the Scalish 
case was the adjustment disallowing 
the amortization deduction by the 
partnership. The taxpayer acquired 


136 cigarette vending machines under 
contract and 43 cigarette vending 
machines not under contract. The 
contracts were renewable and in nor- 
mal course of business would be re- 
newed. The taxpayer took an amorti- 
zation deduction on amount paid to 
acquire the location contracts. The 
court denied the deduction and held 
that contracts or leases were a Mass 
or Collective Asset with an undeter- 
minable useful life. 

Relying on the aforementioned 
cases, the treasury department has 
ruled that in the purchase of any 
business involving routes, even those 
that are represented by specific loca- 
tions with contracts, any payment in 
excess of the value of the equipment 
is not amortizable, nor deductible. 
They permit no value to be set on the 
contracts even though they have a 
fixed term. 

In cigarette vending and music 
operating routes the cost, in excess of 
equipment value, can be computed for 
each location. The price paid can be 
broken down to a value for the aver- 
age pack so’d or dollar taken in by 
each location. This fact appears to be 
ignored by the Department. But in the 
above cases calling this excess good 
will, the Treasury allows no write off 
if a location is lost, as new acquisi- 
tions supposedly replace those that 
are lost, and there is no decrease in 
the intangible value of the route. A 
write off is allowed only when all 
locations are lost or sold. 

To combat the tough policy which 
the Treasury Department has taken 
with respect to the deduction for ex- 
haustion in the so-called “mass asset” 
cases, a new look will be required in 
the purchase and sale of routes. 

Manifestly, it will require each lo- 
cation to be treated separately and 
distinctly. A dollar value is to be 
placed on (1.) the tangible property 
(2.) covenant not to complete (3.) 
goodwill (4.) the contract. Athough 
the amounts for each category may 
be challenged by the Treasury De- 
partment, the taxpayer is in a better 
position when an allocation is made, 
because a failure to allocate is in 
effect an allocation of zero. 

In analyzing each location as stated 
the appropriate section of the Internal 
Revenue Code can be favorably ap- 
plied to the taxpayer’s contention of 
a deduction for exhaustion. 

Sec. 167(a) of the Internal Revenue 
Code reads in part “General rule — 
there shall be allowed a depreciation 
deduction, a reasonable allowance for 
exhaustion, wear and tear — 

1. of property used in the trade or 
business, or 

2. property held for production of 
income — 

The Treasury regulation 1. 167(a) 3 
delineating the code further states: 
“If an intangible asset is known from 
experience or other factors to be of 
use in the business or in production 
of income for only a limited period, 
the length of which can be estimated 
with accuracy, such an intangible 
asset may be the subject of a depre- 
ciation allowance — No deduction is 
allowable with respect to goodwill — 

Thus under the regulations, if the 
useful life of intangible property such 
as a contract is definitely limited a 
deduction will be allowed. A contract 
is subject to an exhaustion allowance, 
whether it is called depreciation or 
amortization. The only requirements 
are that the life of the contract must 
be determinable and that the contract 
have a cost basis. 

Recently there have been signs that 
the courts if given sufficient facts in 
a given case will back track from the 
hard and fast rule of the “mass asset” 
doctrine. 

In the Indiana Broadcasting Co. 11 
TC 76 — (March 13, 1961) the court 
recognized that network affiliation 
contracts, even though renewable, 
may have a determinable life based 
on industry reports. 


In a case handed down a few weeks 
ago — The Seaboard Finance Co. (TC 
Memo 1961-253), acquired numerous 
small loan companies. The amounts 
paid for these companies were in ex- 
cess of the face amounts of loan con- 
tracts which the companies had out- 
standing with their customers plus 
certain other assets acquired with the 
business. The Court in allowing 70% 
of the excess as amortizable and 30% 
as goodwill veered away from the 
Thrifticheck case on which the gov- 
ernment leaned heavily, which you 
will recall, claimed that the excess 
was for goodwill and therefore not 
depreciable. 

Both the Indiana Broadcasting Co. 
and The Seaboard Finance Co. cases 
show a ray of light favoring the tax- 
payer in the “mass asset” contest. In 
each case, however, the facts were or- 
ganized and properly presented. Also 
a private ruling was obtained by the 
purchasers of the Cleveland Browns 
football team wherein they were able 
to write off a value set on players 
contracts over 4 % years. This was 
mentioned in Fortune Magazine for 
November, 1964. 

Another factor which could help 
the taxpayer in making these con- 
tracts determinable and consequently 
subject to depreciation is an order in 
a case in the District Court, Southern 
District New York U.S. Cigarette 
Merchandising Association et al 
(Docket No. Civil 92-388 dated Jan- 
uary 9, 1957) holding that contracts 
of the type discussed may not be en- 
tered into for more than 3 years un- 
less specifically requested by the 
lessee. In the past because of the re- 
newable features of the contract the 
Treasury seemed to press the point 
that the life of the contract was not 
determinable. 

Prior to 1962 it was of consider- 
able advantage to have these ma- 
chines and location contracts com- 
bined for the purpose of using these 
values as a basis for depreciation as 
that depreciation was deducted from 
ordinary income. When a sale was 
effected it became property used in 
trade or business and the difference 
between the selling price and the ad- 
justed basis on the books was taxed 
as capital gains provided, the pro- 
perty was held for more than 6 
months. Currently such favorable tax 
treatment on sale is no longer avail- 
able on the depreciation portion taken 
after 1961 (IRC 1243). Now the re- 
covery of any depreciation taken 
after 1961 on the sale of the assets 
must be considered as ordinary in- 
come. This may have something to do 
with the tax court taking another 
look at the problem. 

If the Treasury Department allows 
no amortization of the cost of loca- 
tion contract then the operator will 
have no economic loss as this becomes 
additional cost when the routes are 
sold. However, as most routes are 
purchased by installment notes, which 
must be paid for out of the current 
income, any reduction in cash flow 
caused by taxes on that current in- 
come increases the length of time nec- 
essary to pay for the route. This in- 
creases the cost to the operator be- 
cause of the interest which must be 
paid for a longer financing term in 
the refinancing of old obligations. 

If an allocation of cost can be made 
to apply to contracts then the amorti- 
zation of this cost would be applied 
to current income, which would re- 
duce the tax impact and increase the 
cost flow. 

The normal cigarette contract may 
extend for 3 years and music con- 
tracts for 5 years. When these con- 
tracts are renewed and new bonuses 
are given for each renewal these bo- 
nuses are amortized over the life of 
the new contract. A study of location 
contracts of any operator will reveal 
an average life for each location. If 
this is done by the entire industry as 
was done in the Indiana Broadcasting

rial. George Holtzman, VP, reported 
on the successful Nevele Country 
Club outing in September and advised 
that the ’65 annual meet would once 
again be held at the mountain re- 
treat. Dinner preceded the meeting. 


Co. case then perhaps the industry 
may be permitted to amortize the 
cost of location contracts over 3, 4, 7, 
or 10 years as industry experience 
would reflect. A method should be 
worked out to allocate a portion of 
the cost of the routes to location con- 
tracts as in the Seaboard Finance 
Co. case. Our attitude has been to 
apply a portion of the profit to be 
earned by each location over the term 
of the lease as cost, for example: 

If a location earns a certain amount 
of money per week over and above 
all cost than a portion say 1/3 or 
1/2 of that net applied to the num- 
ber of weeks the contract has to 
run will be the cost to be applied 
to the contract or lease. 

In conclusion, I wish to state that 
it is apparent that only a tax court 
decision will cause the Teasury De- 
partment to change its view on loca- 
tion contracts. I don’t believe you can 
wait for one of the large public com- 
panies to lead the way, as the en- 
forced capitalization of location con- 
tracts enables them to show a better 
profit picture, consequently this prob- 
lem is not as pressing for these com- 
panies as it is for you. 

Information in relation to the act- 
ual life of contracts should be accu- 
mulated on an industry wide basis. 

Contracts of purchase of machines 
on location should be as detailed as 
possible listing for each location the 
value of equipment, contract value, 
and goodwill and restrictive covenant. 

If this is done there may be more 
favorable treatment of this matter in 
the future.

Memory Programmer 
For Background Units 
Intro’d By Seeburg 

CHICAGO — The Seeburg Corporation 
has introduced an electronic memory 
programmer for all multiple-speaker 
Seeburg background music systems 
and other existing speaker systems, 
according to Joseph Hards, Vice- 
President of Seeburg’s Background 
Music System Division. Seeburg dis- 
tributors have received demonstrations 
of the unit and the reaction was high- 
ly favorable, according to factory 
officials. 

The Memory Programmer (Model 
MPE-1) is designed expressly for use 
with the Seeburg “1000 Compact” 
background music system. The two 
units work in conjunction with one 
another through any speaker system. 

The Memory Programmer permits 
insertion of commercials, announce- 
ments, or special music into the over- 
all background music program for 
the location. Hence, an operator can 
offer a more versatile program, there- 
by cultivating department stores, 
banks, hotels and showroom-type lo- 
cations which demand this service. 
The special music, such as Hawaiian, 
German, Italian and other foreign 
musical numbers, is available from 
the Seeburg Specialty Library. Di- 
rect messages may also be program- 
med to be heard at pre-determined 
intervals. The regular music stops 
when the Programmer cuts in. Content 
and frequency of play are controlled 
via the Programmer. 

A manual/automatic switch pro- 
vides for all music or, for the music 
program with automatic insertion of 
announcements or special music not 
already on the Seeburg disks but 
available now on the Memory Pro- 
grammer. When set for Automatic, 
the switch permits operation of the 
pre-set cut-in material. Volume level 
for the announcements can be pre-set 
so that announcements may be played 
louder than the volume used for music, 
the accepted way in which announce-

Britain Raises Loan Rate To 7% 

LONDON — In an attempt to curb devaluation of the British pound, the 
Government here last week raised its bank rate from 5% to 7%, the British 
interest rate which controls the flow of credit in this country. Because of 
the increased bank rate, the cost of borrowing money automatically rises. 
Commercial banks generally charge up to 2 percentage points over and 
above the bank rate or the rate paid by the banks. 

British businessmen, and specifically coin machine and vending interests 
here, will therefore pay more for the money needed to import, expand or 
finance future business transactions. The bank rate is the charge by the 
Bank of England for money lent to Treasury bill dealers. It is the unofficial 
key lending rate here. 

The pound sterling was strengthened immediately in the money markets 
going as high as $2.79. A U.S. Federal Reserve discount rate increase was 
initiated immediately thereafter. The rate was raised from 3%% to 4%. 

The move came close on the heels of an increase in British tariffs of 15% 
announced two weeks ago (CB Nov. 14). Already hire purchase finance rates 
are up one per cent for phonographs and automatic vending machines. Amuse- 
ment equipment is up two per cent and gambling units up three per cent. 
These increases coupled with the fifteen per cent surcharge will mean either 
fewer transactions or a change of supply sources. 

The eventual effects of the bank rate rise on import volume of coin-oper- 
ated equipment was not immediately learned but it is doubtful if the increase 
will help a generally pessimistic situation. The British coinmen will simply 
pay more for working capital. 

On Thursday, British sources reported that the pound traded as high as 
$2.79 7-32 and closed at $2.79 1-16.

DAVE GOTTLIEB 


Gottliebs Rescue 
Eight From Burning 
Miami Charter Boat 

CHICAGO — Dave Gottlieb and his 
brother Sol Gottlieb were credited in 
Miami, Florida with the spectacular 
rescue of eight people who were 
trapped on the “Gypsy Queen,” a 
charter fishing boat, which burned 
and sunk at sea. 

The Gottlieb brothers received the 
s.o.s. while they were fishing aboard 
“Flipper 11” and rushed to the res- 
cue. 

All hands aboard the burning ship 
jumped into the ocean, and were im- 
mediately pulled on board the “Flip- 
per 11” by Dave and Sol.

Milwaukee Mentions... 


The snow was heavy in the Milwaukee area last week, but this had no 
negative effect on collections. Sales, according to most coinmen in Wisconsin, 
were brisk despite the rugged weather. ... A busy man-on-the-go in Wisconsin 
and Michigan is Bob Rondeau, of Empire Coin Machine Exchange. Bob’s 
territory includes Northern Wisconsin, and he assures us (unnecessarily) that 
it gets mighty cold up there during the blustery winter months. . . . MOA 
Prexy Clint Pierce, of Pierce Music Co., helped break ground (with his wife, 
Marie,) of a new factory in Brodhead, Wisconsin. We refer to Clint as the 
“Squire of Brodhead,” since he is just about the most dedicated citizen there 
where civic and community affairs are concerned. 

Nate Victor, of S. L. London Music Co., reports good sales with Seeburg’s 
LPC-480 coin-operated phono and Seeburg vending machines. ... A couple of 
absent-minded chaps are Sam and Jack Hastings, of Hastings Distribs. They 
waited such a long time to remove their cabin cruiser from Lake Michigan 
that they had to chop ice around the boat to get it out of the harbor and put it 
in drydock for the winter. 

Orville Carnitz, prexy of Badger Novelty Co., trudged off to Boulder Junction 
last week to hunt deer, only to be snowed in by the blizzard. He blanked out 
as a result. While Orv was away the action at the showrooms was covered by 
Ray Van Tour, Dick Wegener, Jim Polowski and Mildred Berna. . . . Harry 
Jacobs, Jr., of United, Inc., returned recently from sunny Florida where he 
wallowed in the sun while his dad, Harry Jacobs, Sr., shivered at the office 
minding the store for him.

Kaye Ships ‘Ring-0’ Round Tabie 



New Kaye Ring-0 round pool table features 3-zone playfield for faster play. 


BROOKLYN, N. Y. — Irving Kaye, 
President of the Irving Kaye Com- 
pany, amusement machine manufac- 
turers, has announced two-week de- 
livery on the firm’s new Ring-0 Pool 
Table, a pool table which is perfectly 
round, not elliptical, measures fifty- 
six inches in outside diameter, and 
features a three-zone playfield in 
three corresponding colors, red, white, 
and blue. 

Each zone offers a spot in corre- 
sponding color, as opposed to the one 
zone, one spot principle used on the 
elliptical games. “The Ring-0 Pool 
Table is the result of several months 
of study by our factory engineers 
and location reaction of players who 
have taken to this new pidnciple of 
pool table play,” stated Kaye last 
week in an interview with Cash Box. 

Kaye said that the three-zone idea 
overcomes the problem of ball ob- 
struction which can happen when a 
single shot principle is used to deter- 
mine a shot. With three zone, the 
player has freedom of play and the 
speed of play is accelerated, accord- 
ing to Howard Kaye, Sales Manager, 
who added that while the playfield is 
a solid color, the corresponding rail 
portion of each zone is red, white or 
blue, with corresponding color spots. 
Actual lines drawn on the playfield 
separate the zones. 

The three-zone idea is an exclusive 
feature and is copyrighted with pat- 
ent pending, according to Howard 


Kaye. Production head, Arnold Kaye, 
advised that cabinet construction is 
“perfectly round,” with no protru- 
sions. Ball drawer viewer is flush 
with the sides, which are tapered to- 
ward the bottom. The legs of the 
table are designed using x-construc- 
tion for rigidity. 

There is one hole in the playfield, 
and the game uses nine balls plus a 
cue. The plexiglass ball viewer sets in 
a drawer which can be completely re- 
moved. The table has a full slate top, 
which incidentally, requires special 
equipment for cutting and precise in- 
stallation. The mechanism used is 
identical with that used on the Kaye 
El Dorado models. The cabinet is fin- 
ished in red and white with formica 
top frame using five-inch leg casters 
and a proven coin mechanism. 

Both Irving and Howard Kaye 
agree that the round table will never 
replace the standard 6-pocket pool 
table but see a definite market for 
this game in many locations. 

“It’s a fast game,” commented Irv- 
ing Kaye, “and it has been built with 
the operator’s viewpoint in mind. Al- 
most any game that can be played on 
a 6-pocket table can be played on 
our Ring-0 Table.” 

There are many variations of 
games which can be played including 
rotation, 9-ball, standard play ami, at 
the discretion of the players, straight 
shots can also be used. 

Kaye is taking orders on the teble 
with a 2-week delivery date promised.

I With That Area 
I in Mind 


LOS ANGELES — A record registra- 
tion of members of the vending indus- 
try, marked the fourth annual Na- 
tional Automatic Merchandising As- 
sociation Western Conference and 
Exhibit held at the Los Angeles Am- 
bassador Hotel, November 20 through 
22 . 

General Chairman of this year’s 
event was Eino A. Kiander, Coos 
Automatic Merchandising Co., Coos 
Bay, Oregon. Forums were arranged 
by Program chairman Jack Nutter 
of ARA Services, Los Angeles. 

Friday’s program opened with a 
Board Meeting of the Northwest 
Automatic Retailers Council of the 
NAMA with attending Northwest 
area operators invited. 

The evening institute on Friday 
concerned “The Western School Mar- 
ket.” Speakers: Harold L. Throop, 
Jr.; Administrative Analyst, Fuller- 
ton Union High School, and Junior 
College Districts, Fullerton, Calif.; 
Herbert D. Rorex, Chief, School 
Lunch Branch, Food Distribution 
Division U.S. Department of Agricul- 
ture, Wash. D.C.; Jerry R. Stapley, 
School Food Consultant, The Vendo 
Co., Los Angeles, and George Loeb of 
Orange County Vending Co., Ana- 
heim, Calif., explored the problems 
of what the vendor needs to know to 
operate successfully within the pecu- 
liarities of the mammoth Western 
school market. Also discussed were 
the many innovations in this field 
that origniated in the West. 

Operator-Moderator for the eve- 
ning institute was Richard G. Hara- 
way. Director of Vending, Saga Food 
Service, Palo Alto, Calif. A General 
Conference Session was held on Sat- 
urday morning with Eino Kiander 
presiding and Jack Nutter acting as 
moderator. Speakers were Thomas B. 
Hungerford, Executive Director, 
NAMA, President Carl Millman and 
Sidney Kallick, Western Counsel. 
Fred W. Conrad, President of the 
Northwest Automatic Retailers Coun- 
cil Report, and Dwight Dickinson, 
President of the California Auto- 
matic Vendors Council, delivered the 
California Council Report. 

“Merchandising For Vending” was 
the subject of a speech by Clarence 
Landis, Northwest Area Director, 
Canteen Division of ACCA, San 
Jose, Calif, who stressed the impor- 
tance of cleanliness, coloring & pack- 
aging in a commissary operation. He 
also said the operator should be quick 
to take advantage of new concepts 
in merchandising such as dietetic 
drinks and packaged cigars. 

“Customer Relations-Both Sides of 
The Coin” was a topic of discussion 
with the account represented by 
William R. Dunbar of State Farm 
Mutual Insurance Co. who commented 
on the problems involved in in-plant 
feeding. The operators side was given 
by Ted R. Nicolay, President of the 
Western Vendors Division Servoma- 
tion of San Bernadino who cited cus- 
tomer relations as the top function 
of the vendor, with the necessity of 
a constant exchange of ideas between 
the operator and the account. The 
convention was climaxed Sunday 
night with an Exhibitor Host cock- 
tail party and the Annual Western 
Banquet held in The Cocoanut Grove 
of the Ambassador Hotel.

Australian Coinage 
System To Change 

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA— The Aus- 
tralian Government plans to intro- 
duce a decimal system to its currency 
in February 1966. The decimal cur- 
rency will replace pounds, shillings 
and pence. Mints will instead turn 
out 1-cent, 2-cent, 5-cent, 10-cent, 20- 
cent and 50-cent pieces. A growing 
shortage of pennies has alarmed the 
Federal Treasurer who has ordered 
continued production of pennies far 
beyond the pre-arranged deadline. 
Collectors and hoarders are respon- 
sible for a large segment of the 800 
million pennies on issue in Australia, 
to remain out of circulation. Some 
apparently have held them in order to 
build a complete collection of Austra- 
lian pennies since the first one was 
issued this century. Others have been 
under the mistaken belief that the 
current penny will be worth 1.2 pen- 
nies when the new coinage is minted. 

The only exchange, according to 
Treasury officials, will be six pennies 
for five cents, or multiples of this 
exchange rate. 

Coin machine industry figures here 
have expressed the hope that the 
changeover will enable them to facili- 
tate an increased rate of play on ma- 
chines now on location. Machines now 
equipped for 2-penny play could, at 
that time, be converted over to 5-cent 
play, and so forth. 

The Australian coin machine in- 
dustry has not increased its price- 
per-play. This factor, combined with 
other economic and civic problems, as 
outlined in an article which appeared 
in Cash Box, Nov. 7, 1964. 


Canteen Doubles 
Dividend Rate 

CHICAGO — The Board of Directors 
of Automatic Canteen Company of 
America, at their meeting last week 
increased the regular quarterly cash 
dividend payable January 2, 1965, to 
stockholders of record December 15, 
1964, to 10^ per share, double the 
previous 5^ per share rate. 

In making the announcement, Pat- 
rick L. O’Malley, President of Auto- 
matic Canteen, stated that the board 
established the 10^ per share rate as a 
regular payout for future quarters. 

O’Malley said it was felt that the 
doubling of the regular dividend was 
justified in view of the company’s es- 
timated earnings for the fiscal year 
just ended and projections of earn- 
ings for future years.

NEW YORK— The New York State 
Liquor Authority has ruled the in- 
stallation of coin-operated equipment 
in taverns as “an exception” to the 
regulations calling for a $100 altera- 
tion filing fee provided the equipment 
doesn’t necessitate a change in seat- 
ing capacity. Prior to this ruling, all 
applications had to be accompanied 
with a non-returnable $100 check. Ap- 
plications still must be filed, however, 
with the SLA. Where seating capac- 
ity is affected application must be 
accompanied with floor plans before 
the change and after the change, and 
the $100 fee. No application is needed 
to remove an amusement device or 
to replace a machine previously 
approved. 

Applications must be filed in tripli- 
cate with the local ABC Board of 
the County in which the location is 
situated except in the City of New 
York where forms are filed with the 
NYC ABC Board. The ruling repre- 
sents a victory for the NYSCMA and 
NYS Guild, two upstate groups led 
by Mrs. Millie McCarthy, Milke Mul- 
queen and Jack Wilson.

Philadelphia Fare 



Banner Specialty’s Jimmy Ginsburg, who’s been Philly’s outlet for the 
Automatic Products ‘Starlite’ cig vendor for two years now, has been quite 
successful in building both the line’s prestige and location strength in this 
area, he commented last week, and is anxiously awaiting the arrival of that 
company’s new ‘Candyshop’ candy machine. Advanced publicity on the new 
machine, plus the reputation of the cig vendor, has brought a sizable number 
of queries from cig ops wanting to know when the vendor will be available, 
Jimmy stated. Chiefly responsible for that well-ordered, well-stocked Banner 
parts department is former Banner mechanic and now parts manager Huey 
Woodard — an integral member of the Banner team. . . . Among the more 
illustrious visitors into David Rosen Inc. last week were Morris Shuckman 
(1964 Allied Jewish Appeal Man of the Year) and Joe Silverman, Pennsy ^ 
association president. Say hello to Jimmie Earl the next time you’re down at 
Rosen’s. Don’t let the name fool you— Jimmie’s Dave’s very efficient girl- 
Friday — pretty too! . . . Out-of-town coinmen on the N. Broad St. scene 
last week included: Leo Willen of Capitol Vending, N.Y.; Alex Elowitz and , 
Louie Lobell of Playland Enterprises (Coney Island arcade owners); and *** 
Murray Piaz (New London, Conn, arcade owner). . . . Frank Ash of Active 
Amusement reports that the excellent cash receipts garnered by ops from « 
Gottlieb’s ‘Happy Clowns’ while on test location have continued right along 
now that the game is officially available from the distrib. Seems like the 
test-location theory is as valid as ever. . . . Marty Berger, Universal Vendors, 
due back in town late last week after exhibiting his company’s ‘Candimat’ 
candy machine at the NAM A Western Show. ... Jim Clement, Philly based 
parts and supplies house, drove up to Jersey City last week for a meet with 
Bucky Van Wyck. The two coinmen discussed cue sticks and the pool table 
business in general. Jim supplies a large number of wholesalers with supplies 
and has been reaping the harvest of the pool table boom during recent years. 
Bucky’s Nyack Slate Company plant, incidentally, burned down last month, 
but the guy is up and at ’em again, without missing a stroke. . . . Marvin 
Stein, Eastern Music Sales prexy, advised last week that the company '' 
operating those Pick-A-Pac’s in Philly schools and libraries is the Jero Sales 
Co., suppliers of school products in this area and in quite a number of other 
states. Stein said the company continues to do well receipt-wise from their 
operation of the general merchandisers. -J’

Announce Your 1965 Sales Program 
In the December 26th Issue Of Cash Box 

start the 


year 
new business! 


The Year End Review Issue of Cash Box has served as a very useful advertising tool 
for the coin machine and vending industry. Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and 
service organizations have found that this issue, coming at the close of the business 
year, and on the eve of the New Year, enables each company to “report to the trade”. 


Cosh Box 
YEAR END 
REVIEW 
OF 

INDUSTRY 

EVENTS 


Manufacturers take advantage of this special issue by showing new lines, talking about 
the success their lines have enjoyed, and speaking in general to customers. Distributors 
with factory lines use it to promote current equipment and to clear the decks of used 
equipment, inventory which need not be carried into 1965. 


In addition to the obvious advantages, the Year End Review features the Cash Box 
Third Quarterly Export Volume Report, chock full of statistics and an analysis of these 
statistics, a Holiday Greeting group of ads from firms taking time out to wish their 
customers and friends good cheer, and the atmosphere in which to promote your com- 
pany name and its products. 


FEATURES: 


1964 REVIEW OF INDUSTRY EVENTS: 

A review of industry news, opinions and 
problems during the past 12 months. 

THIRD QUARTERLY EXPORT 
VOLUME REPORT: 

Find out where the export sales were made 
(and why) in a penetrating report on a $40 
million industry business. 

VENDING 

The part the coin machine operator plays in 
this automatic merchandising business and 
what to expect from him in 1965. 


HOLIDAY GREETINGS: 

For the company who wants to express good 
cheer to all of those people who helped make 
1964 a successful year — the simple expres- 
sion of Holiday Greetings can be the answer 
to reaching the trade around the world with 
an expression of thanks. 

SALE ADS 

The backbone of the distributor with a large 
backlog of used equipment. A year-end clear- 
ance can lighten the inventory and clear the 
showroom floor for a bright new start in ’65.

N.Y. Op Lauds 
Little LP's 

NEW YORK — Sam Morrison, Musical 
Moments, metro operator here, has 
developed the Little LP in certain of 
his locations here, to the point where 
choice locations are now programmed 
with thirty of the 33 rpm stereo 
disks. “For the right location, they’re 
the answer to increased collections,” 
commented Morrison. 

Morrison also sells special music 
(foreign, folk and comedy) on 45 rpm 
or 33’s for 25^ per play where the 
location demand warrants the in- 
creased price. 



Irving Kaye Co, sales manager Howard Kaye and his wife Ellen are the 
proud parents of a brand new baby girl, Susan Lynn, who arrived last Friday, 
Nov. 20th, just in time to see that the Kays’ three-year old daughter Gail 
celebrated Thanksgiving Day with a brand new baby sister. Grandpa Irving’s 
delighted (natch) and the whole Kaye family overjoyed with the news. On 
the machine production side of the family’s interests, the Kaye Co. announced 
that its new round pool table, the ‘Ring-0’, is scheduled for 2-week delivery. 
The 56-inch “perfectly round” table has carried the elliptical table idea 
(introduced at the MOA show by other firms) several steps further. First 
off the table is circular in shape, not elliptical, takes the single-spot idea 
and presents it via a three-zone playfield with three spots and^ speeds up play. 
(See the details in a story elsewhere in this issue.) Ed Ratajack, Kaye sales 
rep, has traveled to almost every state calling on Irving Kaye distribs and 
with much success, according to Howard. Ratajack was appointed by Kaye 
during the MOA Convention and has been on the road almost every week 
since then. Incidentally, Kaye production chief Arnold Kaye is shooting for the 
two-week delivery date for the ‘Ring-0’ and says “production is really rolling 
along!” and we couldn’t argue with the guy. 

A1 “Senator” Bodkin asked ops at the MONY meet last week to contribute 
to the Cardinal Spellman Servicemen’s Club drive. The industry here has 
launched its annual program with a mailing from MONY and a complementary 
mailing from Atlantic New York Corp. for funds for servicemen. Bodkin was 
a,ccompanied by his lovely wife Fran, whom we don’t see as often as we’d 
like to these days. “Thank heavens for the pool table,” exclaimed Bodkin, in 
discussing the operator’s plight of today. . . . Condolences to Jack Erlich on 
the death of his father, and to Harry Block on the passing of his dad. . . . 
Milylie McCarthy flashed the new SLA ruling which enables ops to install an 
amusenient machine, providing seats are not removed, without paying the 
$100 filing fee with application. . . . Ben Chicofsky’s wife Molly advised that 
Ben is “recooping” just fine after surgery. . . . We missed Elaine and Max 
Weiss at the meet. They usually drop into town. . . . Congrats to A1 Denver on 
being re-elected to the Presidency of MONY and to the entire slate who were 
also reelected. . . . Denver asked ops to use identifying labels on machines, at 
their own discretion of course, in order to ease the burden of credit which 
plagues the uninformed op. . . . Nate Sugerman, Lou Wolberg, Carl Korvin 
and Irving Kempner, were all in from Runyon to sit in with ops during the 
meet. . . . Harold Kaufman and Max Guldin, of Musical Distributors, listened 
attentively to the words of wisdom as delivered by attorneys and accountants 
last Tues. eve. . . . The Holiday Inn, where the conclave took place, sets of a 
dinner professionally and adds a meeting room for the session, and not a 
stroke is lost in the program. 

MONY’s VP George Holtzman advised that we’ll all be back at the Nevele 
next Sept, when all associations in the State get together. . . . Welcome to 
MONY : Old Reliable Music, A. Weisberg Service Co., Matthews Service Co. 
and Reyben Music Co.; all new members. . . . The State Liquor Authority 
requires that all licensees report loans up to $1000. See that your locations 
follow suit. . . . MONY continues to appeal the Consent Decree after losing in 
lower courts. . . . The Association’s Gal-Friday Sophie Selinger has the 
nicest personality of anyone we’ve ever met. That smile on her lovely face 
never leaves. . . . Jim Newlander, Fred Poliak and the Rowe AC gang are all 
back from the west coast NAM A show, . . . A. D. Palmer reportedly is 
working just about a full-time day now that he’s almost totally recovered 
from his recent illness. 

Mike Munves ace mechanic Willie Gaines, who’s been out several weeks 
recuperating from an operation, will be back on the job sometime this 
week, according to his good friend A1 Elowitz. Al, who owns several arcades 
in Coney Island along with pairtner Louie Lobell, says he drove Willie to the 
hospital, drove him back home after the operation and just might drive him 
into work the first day. Al says that he and Lou have kept the arcades open 
on weekends due to the good weather and nice crowds still out at Coney. Two 
games which the partners agreed on as being excellent coin box wise are 
Southland’s ‘Time Trials’ and Royal’s ‘Water Polo’. They state that ‘Water 
Polo has been chalking up nothing less than “excellent receipts” and they 
believe the game will “last forever.” 

Sol Lipkin, national sales rep for American Shuffleboard reports that the 
company’s general manager Nick Melone, down recently with a minor illness, 
is back again adding still another section onto the family’s Woodbridge N.J. 
house now that son, six-month old John Lewis (Cha Cha) Melone, youngest of 
his five children, is growing bigger and more active as the days go by. Sol also 
advises the nation’s ops to look for something new to come from American 
soon. . . . Charlie Litchman and his associate Al Sweetwood, of the New York 
Distributing Co., have begun to take orders on their new “low-priced” pool 
table line, they stated last week, and added that the line looks like a winner. 
. . . Musical Distrib’s Max Guldin reports that son Bob, a sophomore at 
Cornell University, just may decide to turn his talents toward journalism when 
it comes time to select a major field of study. Bob, who is quite the student 
according to his dad, turned down a New York State Scholarship in order to 
attend the private ivy league institution. 

Carl Pavesi, president of the Westchester Operators Assn., announced last 
week that they will be combining their regular meeting with a Christmas 
party for members and their wives on the 15th of Dec. at the Roger Smith 
Hotel in White Plains. . . . Sam Morrison, N.Y. music op and ardent coin 
collector (who isn’t?), advises ops who generally play ‘Santa Claus’ at their 
various locations during the upcoming holiday season (and who doesn’t), that 
an excellent and economic item for dispensing to customers and friends is the 
Kennedy half-dollar piece. Speaking of coins, Sam further advises all who may 
be interested that a coin show at the Henry Hudson Hotel on 57th St. in 
Manhattan that was in session last week, was a real treat to fanciers of this 
sport and also opened new insights into some interesting coin speculation. 

Murray Piaz, owner of the Playland Arcade, Ocean Beach Park, in New 
London, Conn., said last week that he has kept his doors open to the public 
during the weekends since the summer ended due to a combination of good 
crowds and nice weather. Murray, however, won’t be too angry when the real 
cold sets in — the operator is also an ardent skier. . . . Mortie, the parts 
manager and route collector at West Side Coin, says that sales of cigarettes 
through vending machines fell after the Surgeon General’s report last Jan., 
but only for two or three weeks before they climbed right back to where they 
were previously.

Cash Box — December 5, 1964 





Chicago Chatter 


The recent blizzard weather played havoc with the coin machine business 
in this area. However, everyone seems to have “shoveled” out fairly well, 
and it’s business as usual. Collections for a short while suffered because of 
the heavy snows, and are back on the rise again. . . . Ross Scheer, head of 
Western Trails Amusement Co., returned from his eastern swing t’other day 
and reports that the hunting up in Maine was poor, but his business arrange- 
ments with Unique Industries excellent. The factory is in full production, 
trying to shove out as many kiddie ride back orders as possible. Overseeing 
production are Carl Herzog, president of Unique Industries; and his right- 
hand-man, John Valentine. 

Paul Huebsch, Rowe AC’s regional manager, hit the road just before the 
Thanksgiving holiday, expecting to return home to feast on the traditional 
turkey. . . . Bill O’Donnell, prexy of Bally Mfg. Co., and Herb Jones are 
thrilled over the healthy sales reaction with Bally’s “Big Day” four-player 
amusement game. Herb says they’ve never had such success with a four- 
player before. 

Edward G. Doris, executive vice prexy of Rock-Ola Mfg. Corp., reports 
steady, heavy sales with Rock-Ola’s “Grand Prix” and “Princess Royal” 
phonos. Ed is enjoying the fantastic success also that Ara Parseghian’s Notre 
Dame Football Team is enjoying. He feels certain the Fightin’ Irish will 
have a perfect (ten straight victories) season. Ed’s son, Peter Doris, is a 
pre-medical student at Notre Dame. . . . We extend sincerest condolences 
to Empire Coin’s Leonard Zeidman, whose father, Joseph Zeidman, died last 
Monday, November 23. He was 80. Funeral was last Tuesday afternoon at 
Original Weinstein Funeral Home. The entire Empire Coin gang — Gil Kitt, 
Joe Robbins, Jack Burns, Bill Milner, et al — attended the funeral. All her 
friends are congratulating Empire’s Caroline Weintraub and her husband Bill, 
who became grandparents for the 16th time! That’s right! They now have 16 
grandchildren (and she still looks like a slick chick!). 

While in South Bend, Indiana for the Music Operators Society of St. 
Joseph Valley shindig Nate Feinstein, of World Wide Distribs introduced the 
Chi distrib’s newest addition in the sales department. Harold Shafer, Howie 
Freer infos that the service schools at World Wide will be renewed at a 
later date. Meanwhile everyone there is looking forward to the Thanksgiving 
Day holiday. . . . Just to mention a few of the operators we met in South 
Bend last week: Mr. & Mrs. (Gordon and Ruth) Ford, of Ford Music Co.; 
Mr. & Mrs. Carl Zimmer, Zimmer’s “Gal Friday,” Lucy; Mr. & Mrs. Paul 
Paden, Amy and Fred Keidesch, Frank Fabiano, Al Evans, Joe MacQuivey, 
Vern Daly, and many, many more. By the way, Caroline Weintraub tells us 
her new granddaughter’s name is Julie Ann Weintraub. She’s the pert, little 
daughter of Louis and Carol Weintraub. 

It was Dave and Sol Gottlieb to the rescue, literally, last week. They were 
credited with saving eight lives when a charter fishing boat the “Gypsy 
Queen” burned and sank off the Florida Coast. Dave steered his fabulous 
“Flipper II” at full speed toward the sinking vessel and he and Sol pulled 
all of the passengers and crew members on board. . . . The remodeling job 
in the executive and sales offices at United Mfg. Co. is proceeding on schedule, 
according to Bud Lurie. Meanwhile, Sam Stern, Herb Oettinger, Bill DeSelm 
and Jack Mittel are busy writing up sales orders on “Whoopee” flipper “Po- 
laris” big ball bowler, and “Orbit” puck shuffle alleys. Sam Stern just returned 
from a sales trip to the Scandinavian Countries. 

Atlas Music’s Stan Levin tells us the local distrib will hold a phono service 
school class, Dec. 9, featuring Rowe-AMI’s M-200 “Tropicana” coin-operated 
phono. Bill Phillips and two of his hunting guests, Carroll Usry, of C & R 
Amusements; and Harvey “Curley” Slyter, of Rockford, Illinois, enjoyed a 
rare experience last week while hunting deer during the blizzard. With just 
one shotgun slug between them Slyter managed to bag two deer with the 
one shot. . . . This puzzler from Joe Schwartz and Mort Levinson, of Na- 
tional Coin Machine Exchange: “Big surprise doings stirring at National 
Coin — more later.” 

Hank Ross and “Iggy” Wolverton are still sweatin’ out their decision on 
the prospective new plant facilities (70,000 square feet of space) in Franklin 
Park. They have several weeks yet to decide. Meanwhile, Hank says he and 
“Iggy” are as much concerned with easing the transportation problems for 
their employees as they are with their need to expand considerably. 

Johnny Frantz and Don Congdon, J. F. Frantz Mfg. Co., will be in the 
same exhibit booth at the Parks Show, near the entrance, they were in last 
year. Amusement games in the Frantz exhibit include: “Kicker & Catcher,” 
“U.S. Marshal,” and — of course — Frantz’s “Shooting Gallery” . . . While in 
South Bend we visited with Bud Moore and Paul Hertel. 

Mort Secore, sales director of Chicago Dynamic Industries, informs that 
he and Ralph Wyckoff are getting terrific reaction from all over the country 
with ChiCoin’s new “Pop-Up” (popping-ball) amusement game. The plant 
is humming along at peak production. . . . While Marvel Mfg. prexy Ted 
Rubey and Estelle Bye were planning to enjoy a delightful Thanksgiving 
Day with their families, they expressed much delight in the way Marvel’s 
electrical scoreboards for shuffleboards are moving out in shipments to the trade.

4 Balfi Counties 
Ask 2-Year Stay 

BALTIMORE — The four counties in 
Southern Maryland ordered to re- 
move all slot machines over a three 
year period beginning July 1, 1965, 
have received a reason for relief — 
State legislators won a battle last 
week in an effort to delay the ban 
following recommendation from the 
General Assembly that the Counties 
be given another two years before the 
machines must be removed. 

There are approximately 5000 slot 
machines in Anne Arundel, Calvert, 
Charles and St. Mary’s Counties. 
They are the only legal slot machines 
in America outside of the State of 
Nevada. 

In 1963 the State Legislature voted 
to remove the machines. Slot machine 
interests here claim economic set- 
backs if this ruling is carried out. 
This argument helped the slot ma- 
chine people enjoy a two-year hiatus 
in the past. Governor J. Millard 
Dawes who spearheaded the drive to 
remove the machines claims that he is 
still vigorously opposed to relaxation 
of the ruling. 

In 1963 County revenues amounted 
to $1,692,987. The only other industry 
which came close to the comparable 
tax payment was the tobacco indus- 
try. Of the four counties involved, 
Anne Arundel is reported to be the 
only County which has attempted to 
diversify its industry. 

Last week the slot machine indus- 
try hoped for a ruling which would 
enable legal operation of the equip- 
ment for at least another two years.
